Building Confidence for Women

Event Date: 
14 Jun 2019 - 10:00 to 16:00


Eleanor Rosevelt said “A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water”.   We know that our women members manage busy complex lives, often instinctively focusing on everyone else’s needs without taking time to consider our own.   The good news is that self-confidence can be learned and we can build a set of skills that will enable us to more effectively stand up for ourselves and others.   This workshop explores how society influences how we respond to issues and in recognising that, how to overcome obstacles in your workplace or home life.   We particularly recommend it for women who would like to become more active in the trade union.  It will be delivered by Deirdre Gunn.


Further sessions of this workshop will be run on 

Fri. 6   Dec – UNISON, Belfast
