28 October 2017, 13:00 - 14:30
Dr Terri Simpkin leads an interactive session based on her current global research into the impostor phenomenon. Learn how the stories we hear about ourselves in childhood, the media and our secondary socialisation contribute to a sense of not being good enough and the plausibility of a sense of being a fake.
Dr Simpkin believes the impostor pheneomenon is contributing to a lack of women in leadership and non-traditional occupations and presents some resolutions – both personal and organisational to diminish the impact of believing oneself to be a phoney.
Event is part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
