Career Pathways events are organised by London Women’s Forum (LWF) Board of Directors in partnership with ‘best-in-class’ professional and personal development providers, and are free to LWF members
We are pleased to invite LWF members to an evening event – the Imposter Syndrome on Thursday, January 28 18.00 – 19.00 followed by drinks at Allen & Overy’s offices which are conveniently located in close proximity to Liverpool Street station.
The Imposter Syndrome applies to those who attach a low value to their accomplishments or worth despite evidence to the contrary. It affects around 70% of us, particularly high achievers who fear being ‘found out’. It can lead to risk avoidance, missed opportunities and a waste of talent.
This talk from Media Skills for Women looks at the characteristics of the Imposter Syndrome, the research behind it, how to recognise it in yourself and others and steps to overcome it.
