Imposter Syndrome – info for ARM

It was an absolute pleasure to speak to you at ARM today and host a panel discussion prior to Interntaional Women's Day.

If there are any issues or questions you would like to discuss which have been prompted by my talk please do contact me. You can reach me at kate@kateatkin.com or 07779 646976.

On this webpage you will find some extra information on the imposter syndrome (truly a phenomenon) which is based on my own research and that of other experts, and some extra useful links, plus suggestions for TED talks and further reading.

We are still at an early stage in understanding the impact of the Imposter Phenomenon, my interest is in understanding the most effective ways of managing those imposter feelings and passing on this information to others. As I mentioned, I have started my PhD research on this topic. If you are interested in keeping up to date with my research findings and musings on the topic, do sign up to receive my newsletter.
