NJ Tech Council & JP Morgan Present the First WIT forum of 2019:
Overcoming the Imposter Syndrome
The imposter syndrome is a psychological term referring to a pattern of behavior where people doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent, often internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud.”  All across corporate America, women suffer from a lack of confidence, the notion that they do not belong, or that their success was based on luck.  The reality is women earn their seat at the table and should re-focus their energy on self-confidence and realizing their value.
  • Hear from women who have overcome their imposter syndrome and learned to thrive in their confidence
  • Learn about some techniques for self-reflection and how to appreciate the value you bring
  • Identify triggers that may cause imposter syndrome, and tricks for keeping negative thoughts at bay.
