Speak Up: How to Give Less Fucks & Get What You Want

Come share your experiences with Imposter Syndrome, how we can stop being a people pleaser, and ways we can speak up at work that gets us what we want without getting fired. We encourage you to bring a book that's been helpful to you and pass it on to other members of Ladies Get Paid. Women only.

The brave women sharing first will be:

  • Allison Behringer: "Documenting my life as a non-techie at a tech startup and making that into The Intern podcast has been a meta meditation on the questions we often ask ourselves: Do I belong here and am I good enough? The answer to both is yes." 
  • Isabelle Lagarde: "Working in international development, I've been almost constantly overwhelmed and overworked. In my last job transition, I finally recognized my value, and honestly my limitations, and I was able to advocate for myself and get what I needed."  
  • Erika Lewis: "On my journey, I have come to realize that speaking my truth is not enough without an acknowledgment of understanding."
  • Jen Ortiz:"My inner (self-doubting, second-guessing) voice is a cross between Alvie Singer and Daria. I'm working on shutting her up."
  • Jasmine Takanikos:"My worth issues are deeply rooted in humility and non-ego, I am working on understanding that ego has it's place and understanding that balance."
  • Alex Tryon: "I love helping others, but I'm terrible at defining what I need. Instead I get angry when I have a problem and the universe doesn't hand me the solution I need. It's taken some work, but I'm learning to ask for what I need and accept help when its offered."
