You're Invited to Ladies Lounge: Confronting Imposter Syndrome
Great news! The Ladies Lounge series is being rebooted for 2018 and the first event will be on February 20. Two of our JUGs contributors, Lorien Balayan and Jenn Walker Wall will be planning and hosting the events with General Assembly. Without any further ado, here is the information for the next Ladies Lounge:
Ladies Lounge is spending February with women who have overcome Imposter Syndrome to help us better understand what it is, how it manifests, and how we can go about fighting it.
Ever felt like your success wasn’t earned? Ever got a new job or promotion and felt like you didn't deserve it? Worried that people will find out you’re a fraud and 'not deserving of the praise'? You've got Imposter Syndrome, but don't worry, it’s something we all experience.
Imposter Syndrome, also known as 'fraud syndrome', is defined as a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud". It has been theorized that women experience imposter syndrome more often than men, and are uniquely predisposed to having it and feeling undeserving of their success in the workplace.
Join our panelists to hear their own experiences on overcoming those feelings of self-doubt. Recognize your strength and learn how to combat the phenomenon that is plaguing women and workplaces across the world.
