We started 2018 with an event dedicated to developing the skill of self-promotion.
Over 100 women in diverse careers across the health and medical research sector came together at the Australian Museum to hear from our guest speaker Prof Amanda Salis. Amanda is an expert on how to ‘toot your own horn’ and talked through 12 practical tips for incorporating self-promotion into your career as of today.
We also learnt from the experiences of our panellists Dr Caroline Ford, Prof Maria Kavallaris and Prof Minoti Apte, on being nominated, and nominating themselves, for an award. At the event we asked attendees to make a #FWpledge to do the same this year and we prepared a 2018 Award Cheat Sheet to help.
We are declaring 2018 for being #loudandproud – maybe you would like to make a nomination too?
