Even highly achieving and successful people (like graduate students and postdocs!) may feel like impostors when confronted with the competitive aspects of academia and in working closely with so many other intelligent and talented people. 

In this workshop, we will examine the challenges to overcoming the impostor syndrome and explore strategies that will help us to see ourselves as we really are instead of focusing on unrealistic assumptions.
