#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and underrepresented groups to speak openly about their accomplishments in the workplace and beyond, thereby breaking modesty norms and glass ceilings. In this interactive session, participation in group discussions and exercises will help to develop the confidence and skills to promote yourself effectively.
