It is well documented that men tend to apply for a job when they meet just 60% of the criteria, whereas women will only apply when they meet 100%. While it is perfectly natural for most people to feel a lack of confidence when starting in a new role, women have a higher tendency to not feel “good enough”, which can lead to undervaluing yourself and feeling like you don’t belong.

This is the highly problematic imposter syndrome.

Professor Maja draws on years’ worth of data collected with thousands of women around the world to inform her research and build her concepts and strategies. In this 3-hour seminar, you will learn how to develop a more realistic view of what competence is (and it’s not perfection), you’ll understand how organisations, industries and systems feed our insecurities, and you will develop compassion for yourself by learning that self-kindness, not self-judgment is the way forward.
