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.
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.
