Research on the Imposter Phenomenon, shows that 89% of women in STEM experience a sense of ‘intellectual fraudulence’ and it’s mostly driven by the early stories we construct about ourselves, or are imposed upon us by our social settings, the workplace and those around us.

Explore how the ‘stories’ we carry forward from early learning, society and the workplace colour our view of ourselves and influence our behaviour in the workplace and in our personal lives.  Learn to generate ‘counter stories’ to combat the irrational feeling of being a fake.

Following on from the super popular session in 2017 on the Impostor Phenomenon, Terri Simpkin leads another session on the topic.

This event is part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
