Imposter Syndrome: What is it and how to navigate it

April 13 @ 14:00 - 16:00

This event is designed to unpack the phenomena of Imposter Syndrome and help doctoral students feel empowered to explore, address and manage feelings of Imposterism.

Imposter Syndrome is described as feelings of inadequacy or a sense of fraudulence, and it is a common experience among doctoral students and also among academics. It could be impacting on your ability to progress with your studies, so if this is something that you have experienced or are worried about come along and let’s see what we, as a doctoral community, can do to overcome these feelings. If you have any tips to overcome this feeling come along and share these with others.

The session will draw on the expertise from colleagues in the Social & Economic Research Institute – Dr Fariba Darabi (Sheffield Business School) and Dr Laura Kilby (Psychology) and from the Industry & Innovation Research Institute – Dr Catherine Duckett (Biosciences).

Please note that the session is for PGR students
