Women for Election is delighted to bring the popular Power and Perseverance workshop to women in Dublin who are interested in activism and politics.
This workshop will cover:
- Where does power come from
- Understanding and overcoming imposter syndrome
- Facing fears
- Dealing with failure
Theodore Roosevelt said
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
As Brené Brown says ‘I want to be in the arena. I want to be brave with my life’
This session is for all the women who want to be, or are already in the arena. We will discuss confidence, how to gather yourself after a setback and rediscover why you got involved in politics or activism in the first place. We will talk about tapping into inner strength and banishing fears. We will explore power, where it comes from and how to harness it.
This workshop will be interactive and require participation from those attending, and therefore places are limited to 15, make sure you register early to get your spot!
