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.

#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative that empowers women and other underrepresented groups to speak openly about their accomplishments in the workplace and beyond. This workshop is sponsored by IDEAL IT and led by Stanford facilitators.

How it Works

#IAmRemarkable participants will:

  • Attend one 90-minute workshop.
  • Join a Slack community after the workshop, where you’ll have the opportunity to practice what you’ve learned by sharing your #IAmRemarkable stories with others who have gone through the workshop.

For those participating:

  • #IAmRemarkable workshops will be offered once a month, beginning February 2023.
  • There is no cost to participate.
  • Feel free to bring your lunch!

Who Should Attend

#IAmRemarkable workshops are open to any staff member at Stanford, regardless of role, level, or identity.

How You Will Benefit

In this interactive session, you will participate in group discussions and exercises to develop the confidence and skills to promote yourself effectively.

During these 90-minute workshops, we will:

  • Share data and research regarding self promotion and unconscious bias.
  • Go through an exercise to help you articulate your achievements and practice self promotion.
  • Have a discussion and share take home exercises.
