About the event
Dates: Friday, May 14, and 21, 4.30-6pm. Participants from all genders are welcome! You are expected to be present for all sessions. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Presenting a project, pitching an idea or even asking questions in patriarchal environments can be especially challenging. As young professionals entering the job market, we might feel unworthy, insecure to share our thoughts or frustrated for not knowing how to take hold of our performances in situations we want to leave a positive impression. This workshop is about understanding how to see certain situations through the lens of performance and acquiring skills that will help you stand your ground.
Through a series of three 1.5-hour long meetings, participants will engage in role-play, discussions, and dynamic exercises that put into practice public speaking techniques. At the end, participants will have learned how to pitch a project, how to read the audience and techniques that will help them feel empowered and own their performance.
The meetings may take place in person in Geneva or online, subject to the health and safety measures. It is required that participants attend all sessions. The workshop is open to (aspiring) economists of all genders. The number of participants is limited to 6 people, due to the sweet and short format of this workshop.
