How do you show up to work? Are you the quiet introvert who keeps a low-key profile? Or the larger-than-life comedian who makes work relationships look easy? And the even bigger question: are you showing up as your true, unadulterated self, with all your identities included?

Here’s the truth. You shouldn’t have to leave your authentic self behind. Instead, bring him, her, or them with you to work every day — and show imposter syndrome the door.

Duck Creek Technologies’ Lissette Vega-Brown, Customer Success Manager, and Liza Miller, Service Desk Lead, (who are just as different as they are the same) understand that showing up as your authentic self requires being vulnerable and can even lead to questioning whether… are you “You”? Lissette and Liza understand that creating your brand can be isolating and even threaten your self-confidence. They’ll share the secrets they’ve learned throughout their journeys and how setting boundaries and using their voice can enhance your voice.

They’ll also dive deeper into the role Employee Resource Groups play in developing your sense of belonging.

Get ready to take away:

  • What bringing your genuine self to work can look like
  • Ways to build work relationships + connect in remote spaces
  • Utilizing remote flexibility to protect your energy and bandwidth
  • Tips to find — and project — your voice
  • How intersectionality impacts that voice + how it might evolve
  • Strategies to define and respect your boundaries

The only constant we have is ourselves. Let’s feel comfortable enough in our skins to drop our masks and converse our energy :)
