Despite good grades, degrees, promotions, awards and other tangible evidence of their abilities, millions of people around the world worry they're not as intelligent or capable as others "think" they are. It's call imposter syndrome and this feeling is equally prevalent in higher education institutions. 

The behaviors associated with imposter syndromes have consequences not only for individuals but for organizations as well. Whether you are faculty, staff, student, or even a parent- it's essential to understand the dynamics of this unique form of self-doubt so you can take active steps to address it in yourself or those you work with, manage, mentor or teach. Join us for an interactive talk on imposter syndrome in higher education led by internationally-recognized expert and author, Dr. Valerie Young. 

When: Thursday, March 29th. Check-In and Resource Fair from 5-6pm. Presentation from 6-8pm.

Where: Wells Hall, Room B115
