An event to empower, connect, inspire, support, celebrate and develop women in educational leadership.
Virtual | Thursday, May 6, 2021 (9 am – 12 pm)
This virtual event will run from 9 am – 12 pm. In addition to great keynote speakers, attendees will hear messages from special guests, receive an #IamRemarkable paperweight gem, earn 3 professional development clock hours and be eligible for door prizes!
New this year! Many of us struggle when it comes to talking about our own accomplishments. Cultural and gender modesty norms as well as impostor syndrome can prevent anyone from acknowledging their remarkable attributes and expressing their achievements. During an #IamRemarkable workshop, led by Google-trained facilitators, you will learn the importance of self-promotion in your personal and professional life and be equipped with tools to develop this skill. Participants will be invited to challenge the social perception around self-promotion.
THURSDAY, MAY 6, 9 – 12PM
