Attendees will obtain a tool kit to foster cultures of belonging by eradicating imposter syndrome at both the interpersonal and organizational levels. 

Did you know data shows imposter syndrome disproportionately affects underrepresented groups? Many discussions about imposter syndrome focus on how an individual can recover from it, but few focus on the examination of work cultures and how they may be perpetuating imposter syndrome. Michelle is a Hispanic woman in Tech and Miguel served as the first civilian Chief of D&I in the history of the Coast Guard. Together they bring an explosive combination of experiences and strategies to equip HR leaders with the right tools to implement sustainable, systemic solutions to ensure work is a place where everyone can thrive. This session will identify specific actions you can take to create a sense of belonging. You will learn specific steps that can help you facilitate the right workplace interventions and take a 'both/and' approach to meeting your employees' unique needs while also making the organizational shifts required to address imposter syndrome at its true source.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyzing/studying the statistics on the negative impacts of imposter syndrome in workplace belongingness.
  • Applying the four strategies within the T.A.M.E framework to end imposter syndrome at work.
  • Understand the toxic workplace behaviors and customs that lead to feelings of fraud in your employees.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
