About the Event
Why are women always apologizing? Whether asking a question, sending an email, or voicing an opinion, women tend to include apologetic phrasing. This is especially true in the workplace, where verbal and non-verbal actions can undermine our position and convey a lack of confidence. By understanding the root of these behaviors, we can proactively overcome our social tendencies. This session will teach you to be more confident and assertive at work by providing tactics to improve your communication skills. We are all intelligent, capable, amazing engineers – no apology necessary. Leave ready to own your voice and advance your career.
