Session Name:

Overcoming Impostor Syndrome: Creating Inclusive Environments for Women


With the emergence of various campaigns to increase the number of women in STEM-related degrees and careers, the games industry in particular has a less positive reputation for supporting women. Women simply aren't thriving here due to a variety of systemic factors. One of these factors is "impostor syndrome."
This session will define impostor syndrome,name behaviors and unconscious biases that contribute to this industry-wide issue and discuss its impact on women (especially those in technical roles). This talk will also offer insights on how to recondition oneself from the effects of impostor syndrome, as well as provide simple tips to create workplace environments that encourage women to thrive.
