FWA-AWF Mentoring 2021 - Mid-Point Event: Dealing with the Imposter Syndrome
Dear Mentors and Mentees,
We hope you have had a good start to your mentoring journey so far.
Time flies, and we are almost at the mid-point of the programme. We would like to invite you to gather for our Mid-Point Event as a check to keep up the momentum and energy of the programme.
Mentees have identified Dealing with the Imposter Syndrome as a key topic of interest. “Imposter syndrome,” or doubting your abilities and feeling like a fraud at work, disproportionately afflicts high-achieving people, who find it difficult to accept their accomplishments. Many question whether they're deserving of accolades. We discuss how such thinking destroys confidence and starts a negative spiral, but importantly, how we should deal with it.
Given positive feedback from last year's Event, we will also include a virtual networking session at which participants will be randomly matched in break-out rooms of 7 mins each, simulating a real-life physical networking event.
We ask Mentors and Mentees to make time for this session to achieve a critical mass.
Avodah People Solutions (www.avodahsolutions.com) will facilitate this session together with FWA.
