How to beat imposter syndrome in the workplace (181, Nov 2017)

Ever have that lingering sense that you’re not cut out for something? Or that pit-of-the-stomach feeling when you suspect you’re going to be caught out as less able than you are, even when you know you’re more than capable of the task at hand? You might have imposter syndrome.

2017 was the year that imposter syndrome made it into the Oxford English Dictionary, but it’s an experience which has been affecting people across many different industries and continents for some time. While the feeling of being inadequate in the workplace and the fear of being exposed for having the right skills is something which unites genders and generations, it’s something which is particularly pronounced with millennials.
Join Nathalie Marquez Courtney, Aoife McElwain and Dean Van Nguyen as they talk to Banter guest host Aoife Barry about what imposter syndrome is, and isn’t: whether we need to pay any heed to it, how gender and race could determine how badly imposter syndrome might affect us, and how we can start to give those feelings of inferiority the old heave-ho.
Banter on how to beat imposter syndrome in the workplace takes place at The Liquour Rooms, Wellington Quay, Dublin 2 on Wednesday November 29. Doors open at 6pm and the discussion starts at 6.30pm. Tickets can be obtained here and all proceeds from the event go to Rape Crisis Network Ireland.
