This webinar forms part of our How To series. This time we’ll be covering women's confidence.

According to IEMA's 2022 State of the Profession survey, 30% of members stated lack of confidence/self-belief as a barrier to progression. This barrier is reported to effected women more than men (40% vs 19% respectively). In this session, Sarah Mukherjee and Traci Lewis will be discussing their experiences of growing their confidence throughout their lives, as well as sharing some practical tips on how you can develop your own confidence.

This session accounts for 1 hour of CPD and is exclusive to IEMA members.
