Join us for our 3rd session from our joint board development programme from Women in CTRL & PPL where we explore confidence & imposter syndrome. Ever wanted to take that next step in your career but felt you don’t quite fit? Maybe you rarely see people like you in senior roles, or have been told you’re just not ‘leadership material’.
In this interactive session, Prof. Samantha Warren (Uni of Portsmouth/ In the Key of She) will be in conversation with Founder of Women in CTRL Nadia Khan to debunk some myths about ‘imposter syndrome’ and women’s so-called lack of confidence when it comes to stepping up to senior roles, especially in male-dominated contexts.
Using the metaphor of Cinderella’s glass slipper and drawing on findings from her research with women producing electronic music , Sam will show how roles appear to ‘just fit’ some folks and not others according to invisible criteria, and how a ‘lack of confidence’ and ‘imposter syndrome’ are fairy tale justifications that can hide systemic inequality and unconscious bias.
If you want to share your experiences (anonymously) for us to discuss in the session you can do so here: https://padlet.com/samanthawarren/l6swi6kqf9ebwggn
