Date: Thursday, February 22, 2024 Time: 12:00 - 1:30pm Location: 54-100 Dixie Lee Bryant Lecture Hall | MIT Campus, Cambridge, MA
Categories: Community Gatherings

Join the EAPS Peer Mentoring Program and Women+ in Course 12 (WiXII) for a talk on the topic of impostor syndrome.

In this interactive session, led by internationally recognized author and expert, Dr. Valerie Young, you will:

• Understand what impostor syndrome is – and what it is not.

• Learn how impostor syndrome intersects with diversity and inclusion, and why it matters.

• Leave with practical, immediately usable tools and strategies to help yourself and/or the people you are or will lead, manage, mentor, teach, or parent to unlearn impostor syndrome.


Lunch will be served afterwards, but please RSVP for lunch by 2/15 so that we can accommodate dietary restrictions and avoid food waste.

This event is generously sponsored by the MIT School of Science Quality of Life Fund, MIT Office of Graduate Education, and MIT Career Advising & Professional Development. All members of the MIT community are welcome to attend.
