Imposter Syndrome:  The Fear of Being a Fraud

Presenter:  Annmarie Caño, PhD, Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, Gonzaga University

Imposter Syndrome is “loosely defined as doubting your abilities and feeling like a fraud.”  This fear of being found out is often experienced by people with identities that have been marginalized or excluded in higher education. To provide a re-frame, the experience of imposter syndrome is imposed on those who have dared to succeed in a system that was not designed for them.

With this lens, Dr. Caño will offer some personal experiences of being “imposter-ed” by others, including her initial reactions to these experiences and her approach to take a participant-observer stance about what these situations signal about the expectations of others or the environments in which she finds herself. Participants in this session will engage in discussion about what they can do to eliminate “impostering” behaviors so that we can better live our Jesuit mission to be “people for others.”

Please register for this webinar before March 10, here.
