Ericka Spradley Launches Free Career Course For Women: "Ditch The Downplay"
According to Ericka Spradley, Chief PowHer Officer/Founder of Confident Career Woman:
“Women aren’t socialized to own their strengths. Unfortunately they play small as it relates to their expertise and subconsciously self-sabotage their success in certain instances. This shows up in multiple ways resulting in negative career impacts:
- 73% of women won’t pursue a role beyond their experience
- 65% of women won’t request a promotion
- 52% of women won’t ask for a “special assignment” resulting in visibility, social capital and enhanced skillset”
By definition, "Ditch The Downplay" is a woman's ability to stop operating from her weaknesses and minimizing her accomplishments, contributions, etc. because she is/others are uncomfortable. Committed to offering a solution that positions women for professional success, Ericka created a complimentary course that is now accessible anytime, anywhere around the globe.
In this online course, Ericka not only discusses "gender blindness" as well as the negative impact of downplaying who you are and what you do in the workplace, she also reinforces the following via her 5-step proven success model:
“You must be willing to showcase your strengths more than your willingness to shine a light on your weaknesses. You must cultivate self-awareness as it relates to your areas of opportunity without diminishing your power, performance, value and confidence.”
Although Ericka's primary goal for creating the course is to encourage self-advocacy, she wants every woman who enrolls in the course to own this simple, yet powerful fact followed by taking action that reinforces the sentiment:
“You were born with a unique skillset, unmatched talent and unparalleled wisdom. You alone are like no one else on the planet which makes you an asset.”

As a planner who didn't have a plan, I interviewed successfully throughout my career before obtaining a college degree. In essence, my ability to interview served as my lifeline prior to college graduation MUCH later in life. I knew a career change would... Continue Reading
