#Iamremarkable Week 8-15 September

Did you see the Google hashtag #Iamremarkable yesterday?

"#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and other under-represented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond."

Personally find it quite tricky to talk about my achievements.  If you know me, you wouldn't believe it!  But usually, halfway into a conversation, I will wonder if I am 'showing off or 'bragging' and will start to read the listener's micro-expressions.  I 'downplay' most things and brush them to the side, moving along to do more work. 

Most of us rarely celebrate our achievements.  Anna Vainer (Google Marketing) explains how to promote yourself and celebrate your achievements and how this links with Equality and Diversity in the workplace.

Do you think initiatives like this move us closer to true inclusion within diverse workplaces?
