PwC ran the first #IamRemarkable workshop in their office on International Women’s Day 2019. The feedback from the session was so good that they decided to scale it internally: to date 600+ employees at PwC have participated in the workshop, in over 6 countries in the Middle East and the plan to grow further.
PwC have even gone beyond offering this to internal employees: they are becoming trained facilitators themselves in order to offer this to their communities and clients.
#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative which aims to empower women and underrepresented minorities to speak openly about their accomplishments and improve their self promotion skills.
So we have taken #IamRemarkable to our clients and other stakeholders and ran sessions there because we have seen the impact it's had on our people and we want to take that to people outside of our organization and thats been really powerful as well.Norma Taki, Partner, Middle East Diversity & Inclusion Leader, United Arab Emirates
