Let’s Talk About It: Imposter Syndrome (NYC)

News Story

Imposter syndrome is a very real phenomenon that many students face. Learn more on Monday, December 2, when Pace Women in Tech take on this important topic and share their experiences as women in STEM.

The American Psychological Association defines imposter syndrome as a “phenomenon [that] occurs among high achievers who are unable to internalize and accept their success. They often attribute their accomplishments to luck rather than to ability, and fear that others will eventually unmask them as a fraud.” Although there is no official diagnosis for this experience, many psychologists have agreed it exists—and it’s something many people face!

Join Pace Women in Tech when they open up about their own experiences with imposter syndrome and what it’s like to be women in the STEM field. You’ll also get to learn more about this phenomenon and how to handle it:
