Event Description

You’re a Fraud, and We All Know It: Work, Leadership, and Imposter Syndrome


Have you ever felt like you’re not as good at your job as you should be, or that you should know more than you do? Have you had the thought that you might not deserve your success, or that everyone is about to figure out you have no idea what you’re doing? You might be afflicted with imposter syndrome.

Even if you’re not, you’re spending time with people who are – it’s been estimated that as many as 70% of people experience imposter syndrome. It’s a pervasive phenomenon, and it’s impacting the way we work and lead – often negatively.

Presented by PANMA ( Phila Area New Media  Assoc )

Join Amanda Clark and Briana Morgan for a presentation, discussion, and actionable advice in their signature conversational style.

What You’ll Learn:
•What imposter syndrome is
•Who experiences it
•How it affects your work
•What it means for leaders
•How you can leverage it to your advantage
