Women are often tasked with the additional invisible labour of fighting for respect, recognition, and fair compensation.
That is why self-advocacy is a critical skill for women. We’re not always lucky enough to have benevolent bosses or a workplace that inherently recognizes our worth and contributions. However, we can always learn to speak up about our needs, champion our work, and find allies who can help us succeed.
Emma Todd is the CEO of MMH Blockchain Group and Advisory Council Member with Girls in Tech Toronto. Emma will discuss the benefits of speaking up for yourself to get a new job or promotion, including examples you could potentially use as you advocate for yourself in the real world.
