Understanding and Managing Imposter Syndrome
June 8 @ 11:30 - 13:30
Overview: I feel like a fraud”, “I don’t deserve to be here”, “I’ve just been lucky”, “people will find out that I don’t know what I’m talking about”.
If you have ever thought any of the above, then you have likely experienced ‘Imposter Syndrome’.
Imposter Syndrome is very common in research and academia, where our own and our organisation’s expectations are high. Imposter feelings are not limited to those early in their career.Imposter Syndrome affects people at all career stages and is typically more prevalent amongst women and people from other underrepresented groups. It is estimated that over 70% of us will experience a level of Imposter Syndrome at some point in our working life.
The good news is, that although they might show up from time to time, there are some useful strategies for keeping imposter feelings at bay and for coping with them when they arise. During this online 2-hour interactive workshop, we will explore the phenomenon of Imposter Syndrome. We will look at its possible triggers and potential consequences, and consider some approaches for handling the associated thoughts and feelings. You will have the opportunity to discuss and share experiences with other members and will come away from the session with some useful tools and techniques to help you recognise and deal with Imposter Syndrome if it shows up for you.
