Event Details

Do you find it hard to have your ideas or opinions heard? Does the idea of a job interview, negotiating payments, or asking for help make you nervous? Do you struggle with coming across as confident or demanding respect?

Do you find it hard to have your ideas or opinions heard? Does the idea of a job interview, negotiating payments, or asking for help make you nervous? Do you struggle with coming across as confident or demanding respect?
If the answer to any of the above is yes, join the next Beijing Women’s Network and JingJobs Professional Development Series event on 27 April to learn practical skills and techniques for building your Professional Confidence in an international and diverse environment.

Every month, the Beijing Women’s Network and JingJobs bring together experts from diverse backgrounds to empower young and mid-range professionals to build upon their professional skills and networks. If you are not yet a member of the Beijing Women’s Network on WeChat, please add wechat: kwoksamantha and ask to be added into the groups.

Why Professional Confidence?
The Confidence Gap between men and women is a well-documented and global phenomenon. From the Confidence Code, we read:
“Compared with men, women don’t consider themselves as ready for promotions, they predict they’ll do worse on tests, and they generally underestimate their abilities. This disparity stems from factors ranging from upbringing to biology.
A growing body of evidence shows just how devastating this lack of confidence can be. Success, it turns out, correlates just as closely with confidence as it does with competence. No wonder that women, despite all our progress, are still woefully underrepresented at the highest levels.”
In a recent Beijing Women’s Network survey, Professional Confidence was also rated as the number one issue that participants wished to further develop and what they considered as the main barrier to their career progression.
What will this event cover?
By listening to our three expert speakers and sharing with our peers, we will come together and support each other in building professional confidence and skills.
Speaker and panel discussion topics of the evening:
  • Tips for building Professional Confidence for job interviews and meetings
  • How to be confident when negotiating and persuading
  • Professional Confidence in male-dominated industries
  • Cultural differences regarding Professional Confidence
  • Asking for what you need: salary, annual leave, personal development
  • The “Double Bind”
Our experts will also provide some take-home tasks for things you can do at home and in the workplace to further build on these skills.

During the Q&A and Networking sessions, guests can ask any additional questions around the topic of Professional Confidence.
