At this town hall we'll discuss Imposter Syndrome, how to stop being a people pleaser, and ways we can speak up at work that gets us what we want without getting fired.
Imposter Syndrome is defined as high-achieving individuals who have the inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud." Sadly, women are the ones who predominantly suffer from this. Even leading ladies, like Meryl Streep and Jodi Foster, have made comments that diminish their self confidence, and question their talent because they feel like imposters.
The worst part about Imposter Syndrome is that we tend to believe we're the only ones who suffer from it.
We encourage you to bring a book that's been helpful to you and pass it on to other members of Ladies Get Paid.
Thank you As We Dwell for hosting us
