October 20 4:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.

Ever feel like a phony? You feel as though at any moment you are going to be found out as a fraud—like you don't belong where you are, and you only got there through dumb luck. This, my friends, is Imposter Syndrome--the persistent inability to believe that one's success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of one's own efforts or skills. Lots of us have felt this way! At school. At work. The struggle is REAL! And we want to talk about it! Join your UO community for a discussion on facing imposture syndrome head-on and share advice about how to identify and overcome! 

Event sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, as part of the UO Fall Career Readiness Week: Find Your Future Fest sponsored by Kroger

Presented by the University Career Center and Holden Center for Leadership and Community Development.
