Talking about your accomplishments and promoting your work is critical to career success in today's working world. Even the most talented, hard-working professionals can struggle to reach their career goals if they aren't able to tell their professional story and communicate their workplace triumphs. But self-promotion doesn't have to feel gross! In this event, Nisha Chittal, a journalist and engagement editor at Vox.com, will interview Meredith Fineman, author of "Brag Better," about how to promote your work and brag about your accomplishments strategically — in a way that helps you grow your career without feeling icky.
