How many times have you been asked what you do for a living and you find yourself saying, ‘Oh I’m just an assistant’, or worse still you get described by your colleagues as being ‘just the admin person’. The fact of the matter is though, there is nothing ‘just’ about what we do! With still so many negative stereotypes associated with the EA/PA role today, join the movement and get on board to debunk these myths, influence others and become trailblazers of change to improve the perception of the EA role and the value we truly add.
How to join the movement
Simply tag any posts or relevant articles (including WTRB blogs!) with #demolishnegativeEAPAstereotypesforgood and share amongst your social media networks, it’s that easy. Commit to re-educating our friends, family and colleagues on what we really do and help to bring the perception of the assistant role into this century! Lastly consider your own presence and how you’re perceived. Let’s all lead by example – if you want to be taken seriously, then act seriously.
