Imposters Anonymous #1 - Confronting Imposter Stress in our Academic Lives

Sep 28, 2022, 12:00 pm1:00 pm


Event Description

Do you ever feel like your success is undeserved? As if your accomplishments are merely a result of luck? Do you often compare yourself to others? These feelings are common among graduate students, but you don't have to confront them by yourself. This Fall, join us for Imposters Anonymous, a four-part series of lunchtime events designed to help you push back against imposter stress. The sessions are led by trained graduate peer coaches as part of a collaboration between the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning and the GSG Mental Health Initiative, designed specifically to help you learn strategies for overcoming imposter stress in a welcoming and supportive environment. Come to one event or all four, depending on your schedule, and enjoy free lunch courtesy of GSG. We look forward to seeing you there!

The four workshops are:

  • Confronting Imposters Stress in our Academic Lives
  • Strength-spotting & Practicing Self-Compassion
  • Breaking out of the Perfectionism Prison & Embracing a Growth Mindset
  • Reframing “Expertise” & Setting Realistic Expectations
