Combatting Imposter Syndrome in Academia: Thurs, Sept 22, 12-1:30 pm, Old Main Silver & Sage Room, RSVP required
Imposter Syndrome is common among high achievers, and it occurs when people are unable to accept their successes and internalize their accomplishments. They often attribute their accomplishments to luck rather than to ability, and they fear that others will unmask them as a fraud or imposter. This interactive workshop will provide an overview of impostor syndrome and common thoughts among those with impostor syndrome, and examples of how impostor syndrome impacts careers. There will be opportunities for participants to reflect and identify their own impostor thoughts and how it may be impacting their careers. Strategies will be offered on how to overcome or address impostor thoughts, and participants can share strategies they have found helpful.
