Don’t Hurt Yourself: Identifying, Addressing, and Understanding the Imposter in the Room (ID 73)

Have you ever felt like you didn't belong in a certain role, avoided showing confidence, or witnessed students discounting their success? Many people experience a sense of imposter syndrome sometime in their lives. Don't hurt yourself or allow students (first-generation, in particular) to do the same. In this session, participants will learn how to call out imposter syndrome through self-authorship and develop strategies to alleviate its effects.
