Impostor Syndrome Lecture
Impostor Syndrome Lecture |
Do you often dismiss your accomplishments as luck or timing? Do you think, "If I can do it, anyone can"? When you do succeed do you think, "Whew, fooled them again"? It's called the impostor syndrome.
The Women's Place and Gender Initiatives In STEMM recognize Women's History Month with a workshop and presentation by Dr. Valerie Young, internationally-known speaker and leading expert on the impostor syndrome. Join us to further explore these concepts with the author of The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer from the Impostor Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It. Young has decades of in-the-trenches research that has uncovered the often surprising reasons why so many accomplished women experience this crushing self-doubt.
Combining insightful analysis with effective advice and anecdotes, Young explains what the impostor syndrome is, why fraud fears are more common in women, and how you can recognize the way it manifests in your life. Move from "Impostorium" to confidence.
The lecture will take place in Saxbe Auditorium.
