Imposter Syndrome Series 2022

Imposter Syndrome graphicHave you ever had self-doubt about your success and attributed it to luck rather than your hard work? Have you ever downplayed your expertise, even in situations where you are highly skilled? If these situations sound familiar, it may be a symptom of imposter syndrome.  Although the term imposter syndrome has been around since the 1970’s, recent discussion of this term has highlighted how widely experienced this phenomenon is.  The ASU Commission on the Status of Women invites you to a special two-part discussion that will not only delve deep into the concept of imposter syndrome but will also highlight strategies that we can utilize to overcome these barriers. 

Part I hosted on Feb 17th featured a short presentation on imposter syndrome which will be followed by a panel of ASU staff and faculty who will share their experience with imposter syndrome and how they address it in their professional and personal lives.
