Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
For many of us, imposter syndrome has become an impossibility syndrome. Keeping us playing small, self-sabotaging, feeling like a fraud in our careers, afraid to speak up and be seen, and undervaluing our skills, experiences, and accomplishments. Then, at the end of the day, we sit and judge ourselves for not being more “successful”, “creative”, or “further ahead”.
You know in your bones there’s more to you, to your life, and to your career. You have dreams and visions for yourself, your community, and our humanity. Yet, you are feeling overpowered by imposter syndrome and self doubts. Join us to reclaim your power. Learn how to recognize impostor syndrome in yourself and others, and explore practical tools and strategies to triumph over your impossibility syndrome. In this workshop, Amal will guide you through a profound tool to embody a more empowering mindset. So that you can fully show up and flourish in your life and your career.
Resiliency In the Face of Oppressive Systems
Amal's intimate relationship with resiliency, and her audacity to stay standing in the face of overwhelm and chaos of oppressive system after the other. She has learnt how are we all contributing to the system and making those harms and injustices possible. She is passionate about sharing her story and empowering her audience with tools to get to know their nervous system and to have the courage to take action.
We will examine how we are complicit in keeping systems alive that support hetro-patriarchy, white supremacy and racial violence, and what our responsibility and capacity towards the change.
Often times we hear about men's “bro culture” and women's “cattiness” in the workplace, but we almost never hear about true sisterhood, women who are building each other up, practicing radical generosity. In this no-holds-barred talk and workshop, Amal challenges our beliefs that we have internalised about other women, the stories and names we call each other, and helps the group experience genuine sisterhood.
