Leading With Confidence in Male Dominated Environments
When: October 11, 2023
11:00 am - Noon EST
Presented by: Micha Goebig
Many female professionals feel consistently underestimated and passed over, especially in male-dominated environments such as tech and automotive. Recent studies show that close to 80 percent of women struggle with a lack of confidence at work. In other words, a large number of women are held back in their advancement by self-doubts and low self-esteem, shying away from self-advocacy. In our day and age, however, confidence and visibility can be about as vital as expertise and experience in shaping a successful career. Why are so many female professionals struggling with confidence? First, corporate continues to be a world primarily designed for (white) men. So women often have to work a lot harder for the same reward. Instead of recognizing this inequity, we tend to internalize the experience as a sense of “not enough”. Second, our brain is wired to trust past experience above all. In our fast-paced business world, time to do something over and over again – and gradually build experience and thus confidence in our skills and ability – is increasingly rare. But the good news is: Confidence is a transferable skill, and in this session you will learn how to leverage it!
