Have you ever attributed your success to external reasons and not your true abilities, knowledge, or expertise? Do you know someone who believes they do not deserve professional accolades because they feel they are not competent or worthy? These are telling signs of impostor syndrome. According to new research, many in the nutrition and dietetics community experience it and these negative perceptions can inhibit the desire for taking advantage of career opportunities, pursuing career advancement, or seeking entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship opportunities. Impostor syndrome is pervasive across race and ethnicity, genders, and ages - affecting individuals from their time in school, throughout their career, and even up to retirement.
Attendees will be engaged through interactive case study activities to:
- deconstruct root causes of why dietitians and dietetic students may experience impostor syndrome
- review common thoughts and feelings associated with impostorism, and
- specify how we can all work towards overcoming feelings of self-doubt that limit professional achievement and success!
