Research-Based Strategies for Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

February 14, 2022, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm EST

Have you often succeeded at an academic task even though you were afraid you wouldn’t do well? Do you dread others evaluating your work? Do you tend to remember incidents when you haven’t done your best more than those when you have? Thoughts such as these are the hallmark of imposter syndrome thinking. This workshop shares insights from the scholarship on imposter syndrome and provides research-based strategies for overcoming imposter syndrome.

Learning Objectives:

  • Share insights from scholarship on psychological constructs of imposter syndrome and stereotype threat
  • Provide research-based strategies for overcoming – and even harnessing – these psychological constructs

This workshop is designed for University of Michigan master’s students, doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact to see if we can accommodate your attendance.

This workshop is part of the Rackham North Workshop Series although graduate students from all campuses are welcome to attend.
