Overcoming impostor phenomenon

The event is a partnership between the ALBA Network, IBRO Early Career Committee and World Women in Neuroscience (WWN). Through insightful discussions, participants will learn how a better understanding of the systemic aspects of impostor phenomenon can help deconstruct it. 

The session will start with two testimonials and presentations on different dimensions of the impostor phenomenon, on how it can affect anyone, and on strategies to overcome it. This will be followed by focused discussions on various aspects of the impostor phenomenon in round tables. Each table will be facilitated by a lived experience expert (members of ALBA, IBRO ECC or WWN) and participants will rotate through at least two tables to get different perspectives. 
Drinks and snacks will be served.
