Overview: Our program of soft skill, confidence building workshops have been created to tackle what can only be described as an enforced identity crisis that young women are undergoing in today’s society. Via BBB we walk through, discuss, provide tools on how to identify, categorise, and respond to the overwhelming “societal pressure” being placed on young women today. The aim of which is to ensure that thoughts, feelings, and actions are emanated from a place of strong self-value, self-confidence, and self-determination to reach their full potential.
Objective: Introduce female learners (yrs 8-13) in tertiary education to the soft skills, strategies, and tools that will increase their confidence, support their emotional well being, and encourage self-value recognition.
Benefits: Increased female learners’ participation and self-confidence from an important developmental stage. The program introduces intangible yet crucial soft skills required to confidently convey their brilliance without doubt or hesitation, as well as be equipped and empowered to utilise the tools and strategies shared beyond their academic life, which is a vital factor as statistics have proven that it is at the very early stages of a woman’s career that they suffer from the greatest lack of self-confidence, our workshop aims to ensure female learners are just as confident in their abilities as their male counterparts by the time they enter into the workforce.
