YWA Speaks: Workshop - Speak Up and Stand Out: A Guide on Assertive Self-Advocacy
Wednesday, February 21, 2024 (6:30 PM - 8:00 PM) (CST)
The Young Women’s Alliance (YWA) is a nonprofit organization devoted to the professional and personal development of women leaders in Central Texas. For more than 30 years, YWA has been a staple in the Austin community, driven by our four pillars: lead, educate, network, and serve.
Would you like to learn how to advocate for yourself both professionally and personally? Join us in a workshop with Robyn Rodriguez, Founder and CPO of Her HR Help Desk, where she will guide you through what advocating for yourself should and should not look like. Whether you have an upcoming promotion conversation with your manager or you want to get tips for how to approach the upcoming YWA peer to peer fundraising, Robyn will teach you to assertively self-advocate based on your needs and communication style.
