Have you ever doubted your own abilities? Have you ever felt like you were the least qualified person in the room? Do you attribute your success to luck? Research shows that almost 70% of people may suffer from impostor syndrome. During this talk, Kristina will briefly explore the concept of imposter syndrome and offer practical tips for overcoming impostor syndrome, or supporting those around you who might feel like imposters.

Our final luncheon of the Women in Leadership season features local speaker, Kristina Schaefer!
