Imposter syndrome — a fear of getting ‘found out’, experienced by an individual who doubts their skills and accomplishments, often putting successes and achievements down to luck — can impact anyone, at any stage of their career. But it’s thought that women, and particularly those operating in male-dominated sectors, are more susceptible to IS — in a 2020 report, KPMG found that 75% of executive women have personally experienced imposter syndrome at different points in their career. It is important for individuals and organisations to understand the feelings of self-doubt associated with imposter syndrome, in order to create a work environment which fosters a sense of belonging and ownership of achievement. This webinar will offer practical solutions to help achieve this, as well as demonstrating to attendees with IS that they are not alone.
