Imposter Syndrome: A sense of not belonging

Have you ever had the feeling that you are not as competent as others perceive you to be? Do you assume all of your classmates are smarter and more accomplished than you? 

Join us at the 209 FEA Spring Panel for a conversation with education professionals about Imposter Syndrome. 

Thousands of students across America deal with feelings of phoniness, believing that they are not intelligent, capable or create despite evidence of high achievement. 

How can educators combat Imposter Syndrome? 

Objective 

Discuss the impact of imposter syndrome on minority students and brainstorm solution.
