#IAmRemarkable is a global movement that empowers everyone, including underrepresented groups, to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond, while challenging the social perception around self-promotion.
At the heart of our movement is a 90 minute workshop open to everyone, hosted by trained facilitators worldwide face to face and virtually.
#IAmRemarkable started at Google in 2016 and has seen continued scale and impact principally because of the strength of its community. As of December 2023, 550,000+ people have participated in #IAmRemarkable workshops, across 180 countries. This has been made possible by more than 6,000 volunteer facilitators who are passionate and committed to helping others celebrate their achievements.
The 90-minute workshop helps participants learn how to speak openly about their accomplishments. The workshop is divided into three parts:
Discuss: Increase awareness of data and research regarding self-promotion and bias
Practice: Practice articulating individual achievements and sharing with others
Act: Reflect, discuss and share take home exercises to increase comfort with self-promotion
One of the big hurdles women and underrepresented groups face when tackling the leadership gap is practicing self-promotion — or vocally expressing their achievements in a working environment.
The benefits of self-promotion are vast — including taking control of how others perceive you, and making them understand the unique contribution you can make.
The #IAmRemarkable workshop is available in over 20 languages and include - English, Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Simplified Mandarin, Traditional Mandarin, Portuguese (BR), Russian, Spanish, Portuguese (PT), Swedish, Polish, Finnish, Greek, Hindi, Croatian, Slovenian, Serbian, Turkish, Korean, Bahasa Indonesian, Ukrainian, Armenian
Not at all.
While the workshop started as women only, with time, we realised other marginalised and underrepresented groups face the same struggles. We offer this workshop to everyone and encourage you to run the workshop for various audiences. The workshop's goal is to not only teach the skills of self-promotion but also to increase awareness of the hurdles underrepresented groups face in the workplace and beyond. There is high value in having allies in the room as they will support driving the required behavior change.
All #IAmRemarkable sessions are free of charge for participants.
