Speaking Up for Yourself and Underrepresented Groups

Are you at a point in your career where you’ve realized that putting your head down, doing the work, and hoping people notice just isn’t cutting it? Perhaps you’ve recognized the importance of advocating for yourself—and other underrepresented groups—but don’t know how or where you start? In this course, communications training expert Jessica Chen teaches you how to be a better communicator, and how to address the challenges one faces as a minority in the workplace. Jessica first covers what you can do to be a better advocate for yourself at work: addressing communications challenges, building speaking confidence, the importance of showcasing your value and work with others outside of your immediate circle, and more. She then shows you how you can advocate for underrepresented groups by helping them speak up, and by creating an inclusive speaking environment. If you’re looking for ways to better communicate your value and increase your allyship at work, join Jessica in this course.
