Advocating for Yourself

Advocating for yourself can help you reach your goals. Self-advocacy means communicating what you need to thrive. When advocating for yourself, first get clear on what you need to be successful. Ask yourself:

  • What gives you strength and empowers you?
  • What do you need to grow?
  • Is it time to set boundaries?

It might feel uncomfortable if you are not used to advocating for yourself, but the more you do it, the easier it will become. If you need help, reach out to a mentor, trusted friend, or mental health counselor for support. Recognizing what you need to be successful and advocating for it will make you a stronger employee, help you grow, and increase your confidence. Your needs and concerns are valid and deserve to be addressed.

How will you advocate for yourself in 2023?
