Imposter Syndrome & Racial Trauma Launchpad Member Wellness Presents:


Imposter Syndrome & Racial Trauma

As a BIPOC individual, it may be difficult to envision yourself in a particular career or role when cultural/ethnic representation in the field is lacking. This can cause self-doubt and other mental health issues to occur. This workshop will discuss the racialized component of imposter syndrome and ways to cope.
