About this event

In this session, we’ll talk about the differences between being genuinely in over your head, mistakenly thinking you are in over your head, and being discriminated against in such a way that you start to doubt and undercut yourself. To develop ourselves professionally, we will often have to push ourselves past a comfort zone, but how do you know how far to push? We’ll work on strategies to identify when we are undercutting ourselves and when we are being undercut, and we’ll investigate the ways that imposter syndrome becomes a tool to oppress and exclude people who have been historically underrepresented in certain jobs and sectors.
