Last Friday we had a very special speaker, Dr Irene Garcia, present a workshop for the AUWiSE society. The workshop focused on how to use social perception of ourselves to regain some control and to improve our confidence and succeed in a variety of contexts (professional mostly).
She touched a a number of hurdles women (some cases women, some cases just people in general) face in the professional world and tools to start overcoming them.
We feel that events like this are important in encouraging students to engage and learn from each other whilst at the same time having the opportunity to personally develop themselves and gain fresh new ways of thinking.
Thank you to all the students that attended and Dr Irene Garcia for her unforgettable presentation.
This event was sponsored by Shell & it couldn’t have been done without their generosity.
