Watch: Advocating for Women at Work

Women, nonbinary people and trans employees are faced with a myriad of challenges due to gender bias in the workplace, which often hold them back from reaching higher leadership levels within their organizations. While we wait for the rest of society to catch up, employees can use this workshop to make strides for themselves and uplift fellow women, nonbinary people and trans colleagues.

Participants will learn:

  • How to respond to micro-aggressions, using established strategies as well as some “go to” phrases.

  • How to make workplace allies out of male colleagues and managers.

  • How to vouch for fellow women and non-binary colleagues, which studies show is a simple, yet effective method for reducing bias in a positive manner

This webinar is led by GoldJam Creative. Founders/instructors Allison Goldberg and Jen Jamula coach communication skills – such as public speaking, pitching, giving and receiving feedback, diversity and inclusion, effective communication, and more - to individuals and companies, including Spotify, Squarespace, Time Warner, Buzzfeed, and American Express.

Watch: Inside the Mind of a Recruiter: Resumes, Interviews & Offers

With conflicting opinions on how to find a job seemingly everywhere, it’s hard to figure out what recruiters are really looking for on resumes and in interviews, and even harder to know how to successfully negotiate offers.

During this webinar, I’m going to take you through 3 major parts of every interview process and the most frequently asked questions about each area: resumes, interviews, and offers.

  • Have you ever wondered what recruiters wish candidates had on their resumes (or wish candidates didn’t have on their resumes)?

  • How do you know what to say during an interview that will make you stand out in a crowd?

  • What do you need to do from the beginning of your interview process to get the offer you want in the end?

By creating a roadmap for your career, you’ll be able to more easily verbalize your strengths, skills, and interests in order to find more career satisfaction during all the twists and turns life takes us through.

Topics covered in the workshop will include:

  • identifying themes in your career

  • identifying transferable skills and how they relate to what you'll do next

  • identifying your values and how they fit with your career

  • how to conduct informational interviews (aka coffee chats- much less formal and more comfortable!) so you can identify what the next step in your career looks like

After this webinar workshop, you'll walk away with an action plan tailored to your career goals, plus strategies for how to implement it. You’ll feel proactive, more confident, and more prepared for that next career conversation or opportunity that comes your way.
