About the event

Have you ever wondered whether you deserve to be where you are? Have you ever distrusted your achievements and doubted your abilities and hard work?  Many female academics find it difficult to accept their accomplishments. They question whether they’re deserving of promotion, awards and other successes.  How do we experience imposter syndrome? Why does it exist in the first place and what can we do about it?  In the 10th webinar of the "Small Wins" series, ARC Laureate Fellow Sharon Parker (Curtin University) will lead a discussion around the imposter syndrome phenomenon.  

She will be joined by ARC Laureate Fellows, Professor Kaarin Antsey (University of New South Wales) and Professor Naomi McClure-Griffiths (Australian National University) who will share their experience and tips.
