In celebration of Girls in ICT Day 2015 and as the third workshop in the Spring 2015 inQube "Build a Kickass Online Presence" series with Ms. Selma Franssen, the "Quantify Everything" workshop explores the question:
 
How can I make my online profile more compelling and sell myself online with numbers?
 
Does your LinkedIn profile say that you are a good people manager, that you are creative or that you excel at giving presentations? No doubt you are great at these things, but how can you make these soft skills stick with a hiring manager who reads standard lines like these all day? 'I increased the number of Facebook likes for our company page with 365%' sounds a lot more convincing than 'I'm a skilled social media user'. Or how about 'I gave 5 courses on conflict resolution to over 75 participants, with an overall participant satisfaction rate of 91%' versus 'I occasionally give workshops and am good as public speaking'.   
 
 
Lets start quantifying EVERYTHING and add those numbers to your resume bullets.
 
 
In this workshop you will:
  • find out how you can quantify your soft skills
  • explore how you can crunch and present these numbers without bragging 
  • learn how the internet can help you create quantifiable projects when you have no job experience
 
Materials:
If you would like to try out the hands-on exercises during the session, please feel free to bring along your laptop.  This is not critical (or even central) to your being able to fully engage in and benefit from the workshop, however. Free wifi is available. 
 
Snacks & Refreshments:
Light snacks and refreshments are provided at all inQube gatherings, but participants are also encouraged to bring supplemental items for themselves and to share. :)
 

The Workshop Leader:

The inQube "Build a Kickass Online Presence" series is led by Ms. Selma Franssen.

Selma Franssen graduated at the age of 21 with a bachelor's degree in Scandinavian languages, no relevant job experience and no money in the bank: a recipe for disaster. She decided that she would not let her geeky degree define the rest of her career. She set out to cultivate as many online communication skills as possible and to learn to write like a boss. 

A stroke of luck got her a job as administrative assistant at a major music festival in the Netherlands. Within a year she was their web and print editor. She started a communications business and became an environmental warrior in her spare time. Communicating complex ideas in a fast digital world became her obsession and another stroke of luck brought her to Belgium to write about climate issues for independent news website DeWereldMorgen.be

She has since developed (online) communications strategies for various Belgian NGO's and writes for feminist journalist start up Charliemag.be  She was selected one of the hundred most inspiring and innovative young Dutch people working in the field of sustainability by the jury of DJ100.nl in 2014. Selma is passionate about helping other women develop tech skills that can kick start or improve their career and to break free from traditional career structures. 

The inQube "Build a Kickass Online Presence" Series:

The Spring 2015 inQube "Build a Kickass Online Presence" series is for Women of All Ages:  Beginning and experienced job-seekers, girls who do not want to rely on one source of income, starters and freelancers. No matter your level of tech skills or your field of work, a lot of hiring, selling and pitching happens online these days. We all have an online presence (just google yourself) and if we don't, that's not in our advantage. So start claiming your online presence and leave a great impression on anyone who might type your name and press the search button!

Please find the Spring 2015 "Build a Kickass Online Presence" calendar below:

The workshops in the "Build a Kickass Online Presence" series can be booked together at a discount, or may be taken as individual workshops.

Share Your Super Power with the inQube Community!

inQube is about knowledge-sharing among women -- some new to the career marketplace, and some more experienced but looking to try new things, e.g. starting their own digitally-driven commercial or social enterprise.  Do you have a secret super power (big or small!) -- building resumes, time management, bookkeeping tips & tricks, online marketing, etc. -- that you would like to share with a group of kind and curious women who could really benefit from what you know, and that you can share in an open, relaxed and non-judging setting?  Then please get in touch with us! 

Your contribution to the inQube community can pay you back in free attendance at workshops and events run by inQube and other community members, so anything you contribute -- in English, Dutch, French or whatever language in which you're most comfortable -- will definitely come back to you.

Imagine a world where you can attend your Economics class from the comfort of your own room, where your gerbil can send you a picture to say it's hungry, or your dress can tell when you'll need a rain coat....  If you think this is the World of Tomorrow, you're in for a world of surprises!  This phenomenon is called the "Internet of Things".  It's a world where things connected to the Internet can "think" and "communicate" for themselves.  It's a world where all the things mentioned here are already taking place.  It is the World of Today, and YOU are a part of it!

Savana Signatures’ strategy is inspired by Ghana’s vision of a just and free society. Savana Signatures (SavSign) has therefore aligned her mission and vision with two priorities of the Medium-Term Development Strategy initiated in 2009- the Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda. 

With a mission of “to equip youth, women and vulnerable groups with ICT skills for their personal and professional development through the innovative use of ICT” and a vision of a “society where relevant information, knowledge and skills for development are enhanced by equal access to and use of ICT”, Savana Signatures intends to focus on the use of ICT to contribute to Ghana’s vision through human resource development and transparent and accountable government agencies.

Vision

A society where relevant information, knowledge and skills for development are enhanced by equal access to and use of ICT.

 

This is a hackathon style event where mothers and daughters learn to code clothes and accessories. They also offer scholarships to attend.

WIT provides a diverse mix of resources to empower Nigerian women, youth, and children. Offerings include hosted events, webinars, articles, training, networking, career fairs, and contests.

Recently, WITIN is supporting an international mobile app challenge that encourages teams of secondary school girls to develop mobile apps, conduct market research, write business plans, and create a funding pitch. Nigerian teams will compete and a national winner will then travel to California to compete globally on May 1st, 2013. Such a challenge is inspiring for any country, yet alone Nigeria, and we look forward to sharing news of the success.

Another current initiative aims to target 10,000 marginalized women for empowerment via ICT by the end of 2013. The hope is that with support, women can create online presences for their businesses. WITIN also supports International Girl in ICT Day and has participated in numerous ITU and Google events.

Other efforts include:
Green ICT projects
Sensitization of at least 250 schools on science, technology, engineering, and maths
Forums on ICT and child development
Twitter aid for women businesses

Don’t forget, International Girls in ICT Day is April 25th, 2013. At least six African countries participated last year and hopefully more will take part in 2013!
