Title: Changing the Imposter Syndrome Narrative
Speaker: Laura Burnett
Bio: "Laura Burnett is Made Tech’s Delivery Principal and a people-focused product specialist with a wealth of experience in building high-quality products, managing global teams and driving positive organisational changes. Laura has a true passion and drive for delivering the highest level of value to clients by inspiring high performing teams and guiding them to overcome complex challenges all whilst being the best version of themselves."

Feelings of self-doubt and a lack of confidence are often explained away as imposter syndrome, especially for working women, but is that a useful diagnosis?

If we want to build a truly diverse and inclusive world of work, then we need to question the universally accepted beliefs about imposter syndrome. We need to change the narrative from a problem faced by an individual and instead ask ourselves what it is about organisational culture that leads to 70% of people suffering from imposter syndrome during their careers.

Join Made Tech’s Delivery Principal, Laura Burnett as she explores how we can challenge the common misconceptions surrounding imposter syndrome and learn:
• Who suffers from Imposter Syndrome?
• Is Imposter Syndrome even a problem?
• How should Imposter Syndrome be addressed?"
