Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

  • General Assembly 12a/45 William Street Melbourne Australia (map)

Do you secretly worry that others will find out you’re not as intelligent and competent as they seem to think you are? Do you often dismiss your accomplishments as a “fluke” or “no big deal?” If so, join the club!  

Impostor Syndrome is the feeling that you aren’t actually qualified for the work you are doing and will be discovered as a fraud. Feelings like this are incredibly common among women in open tech/culture. It can make it difficult for women to believe in their own success, convincing them that they just 'got lucky' in getting where they are. 

We'll be exploring the different ways to combat imposter thoughts and how you can begin to identify and unlearn the kind of self-limiting attitudes and behaviours standing between you and your goals. 

Come along for a night of motivational talks and activities, not to mention a spread of drinks and tasty treats from our sponsors!
