“Portraits: Conversations on Imposter Syndrome”

Imposter Syndrome Image

Portraits are images that convey both how we see ourselves and how we appear to the world. Much like portraits, imposter syndrome can cloud perceptions and cause us to question our capabilities, particularly when perception does not match reality.

Whether we are young or a seasoned veteran; a virtuoso; author; physician; professor; or business executive; a mom, sister, or daughter; many of us have crossed paths with it.

Join the discussion as a variety of panelists tell their stories, share their expertise, and offer advice for conquering imposter syndrome once and for all.

For our June discussion, Johns Hopkins University Economics professor, Dr. Hellen Seshie-Nasser, will discuss gender economics and the cross-cultural component of imposter syndrome based on her experiences teaching in both the US and Ghana.
