Event description

Description

As women, we often find ourselves needing to fit in to others’ (often male-led or constructed) frameworks, rules and systems.

Everyone needs to do this to an extent. What we sometimes don’t realise is how often we ‘edit out’ parts of ourselves as part of this process. These elements of our experience which end up on the cutting room floor can be the things which make us different – and special.

This workshop will have 3 sections:

  1. Jane’s story focusing on the power of experience and choosing positive responses when facing challenges.
  2. An activity to help you explore your experience, discover strengths you may have missed and look at how you present your story to others.
  3. Decide on
  4. 3 things you want to do differently as a result of the workshop.

Our workshop leader

Jane Cordell’s experience has included working as musician and teacher, becoming deaf, joining the diplomatic service and starting her own social enterprise. Regularly having to handle major challenges - including discrimination - has given her lots of practice of valuing and communicating all experience – both as an individual and as a trainer and coach working with marginalised people.

Summer social

As it's the last event in our Birkbeck Astrea year, we'd love it if you could join us for tea and special treats at the end of the event. Networking with strawberries - what could be better? Looking forward to seeing you.
