Shearman Women Webinar: Is Imposter Syndrome Even Real?

  • Webinar

Shearman & Sterling is hosting the webinar "Is Imposter Syndrome Even Real?" on November 30, 2021, at 12:00 pm ET.

The session will discuss "imposter syndrome,"also known as perceived fraudulence, which has gotten a lot of attention in recent years. Many high-achieving people struggle with the feeling that their success is somehow a mistake, rather than a deserved result of their hard work-a phenomenon which has been said to disproportionately affect women. This fireside chat asks: "How valid is that claim?"

Join our speakers as they discuss why the concept of "imposter syndrome" should be scrutinized and share their advice for anyone who may be questioning his or her success.
