Imposter Syndrome?

Changing the Imposter Syndrome Narrative

This week we are running Workshop Wednesday alongside Girlgeekdinners as the subject matter we believe is of interest to everyone.

Imposter Syndrome

Feelings of self-doubt and a lack of confidence are often explained away as imposter syndrome, especially for working women, but is that a useful diagnosis?

If we want to build a truly diverse and inclusive world of work, then we need to question the universally accepted beliefs about imposter syndrome. We need to change the narrative from a problem faced by an individual and instead ask ourselves what it is about organisational culture that leads to 70% of people suffering from imposter syndrome during their careers.

Join Made Tech’s Delivery Principal, Laura Burnett as she explores how we can challenge the common misconceptions surrounding imposter syndrome and learn:

  • Who suffers from Imposter Syndrome?
  • Is Imposter Syndrome even a problem?
  • How should Imposter Syndrome be addressed?”

Full details for signing up are on our events page here.
