Difficult Conversations: The Rise of Executive Imposter Syndrome ​

Difficult Conversations | 4th june 2021 @ 14:00 

‘Imposter syndrome’ spans sectors and roles and those who suffer from it experience a chronic sense of inadequacy or self-doubt that persists despite evident success. While imposter syndrome is a phenomenon which is experienced by both by women and men, it has been argued that black and brown women are most affected. There is also a growing school of thought that in many cases feelings of imposter syndrome are in fact simply a rational response to very real oppressions such as racism and sexism.


In this conversational roundtable, Connex BAME Leadership Network will look at the syndrome, personal experiences with the condition and ways to relieve and dismantle this harmful, common and often painful distortion.
