Data shows nearly two in three of us struggle with Imposter Syndrome, the feeling that one is not cut out for the work one is doing or aspires to do, combined with a fear of being discovered as a fraud. Ironically, high achievers are at a unique risk and suffer a greater sense of isolation and anxiety because of it. This peer-led session was designed specifically for communications folks, who often didn’t study communications, didn’t realize they'd be doing this, and often feel a little lost. By the end of the session, we will all leave with a peer-created Imposter SyndromePro Sheet and a better understanding of how to overcome imposter syndrome.
This session is the first in a multi-part series on institutional liberation. Over the next few months, we will also discuss workplace microaggressions, hierarchies, and how to talk to your teams and to your public audiences about race and class.
