Rethinking Imposter Syndrome
Despite degrees, promotions, tenure, awards, grants and other tangible evidence of their abilities, millions of people around the world, from CEOs to Oscar winners to PhDs, secretly worry they’re not as bright and capable as other people “think” they are. It’s called the Impostor Syndrome. You don’t need to personally identify with this all-too-common form of self-doubt to attend. If you teach, advise, manage, or parent other people, you need to understand the individual and organizational cost of impostor syndrome as well as strategies for addressing it. Join us for an interactive program on impostor syndrome in higher education led by internationally recognized expert and author Valerie Young. A link to this virtual event, held on Zoom, will be sent to registrants a week before the event date.
