Build your own agenda - talk about topics that interest you and that will help you move forward and achieve your goals in 2018!
We start the day off with a combo of Imposter Syndrome workshop and inspirational talk, setting the stage for all of you to realize you have something to share, your voice counts and is heard, and you can actively participate in the upcoming group get-togethers. This is followed by a pure 'Unconference' part, where you will build your own agenda and create topic-based discussion groups.
Have you ever felt that you just got lucky and that sooner or later you'll be found out to be a fake or an impostor? If you answered "yes", you have experienced the Impostor Syndrome. During this workshop, we'll take some time to understand the Impostor Syndrome, analyze how it has affected you in the past and device some strategies to overcome it, or better yet, leverage it for the better in the future.
