Corporate Executive Roundtable: Understanding Imposter Syndrome (at the Executive level)

Online • August 20, 2020

Join us for this weekly, safe, online space for Executive women to connect peer-to-peer through casual conversation guided by Ellevate CEO, Kristy Wallace and rotating guest experts.

Thursday, August 20, 2020 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Ever felt like you’re faking it? Like you’ve been given a position or a responsibility by sheer luck that you know you’re not equipped for — and you keep telling yourself that you don’t deserve it? Or even worse, you live under the constant fear that people are going to find out about you being a fraud, that you don’t really know all that much about what you’re doing. The very thought of it gives you pangs of shame. 

This is called the Imposter Syndrome and you are not alone. First identified in 1978 in a study on high-achieving women, Imposter Syndrome has risen to affect as many as 70% of workers and is especially prevalent in executives. In this discussion, you’ll learn the five types of “imposter” and how to free yourself from its grip in any situation.

Through the years, we’ve built a coalition of courageous, dedicated and kind women who show up for each other.

These recurring events provide an opportunity to connect, crowd-source solutions, receive and give support, and brainstorm ideas and innovation in these uncharted times. And they're weekly, so you can know, and trust in, us being there for you now, and into the future.
