Thrive Lunch: Never Enough: Imposter Syndrome as a Person of Color

Imposter Syndrome is a common phenomenon where people feel that they do not belong or in some way have fooled others into believing they belong and are just waiting for their "secret" to get out.  It's especially common at competitive colleges/universities, such as Colgate.

For students of color, this feeling can be heightened for a number of reasons and can significantly impact self-esteem.  We will explore why it can be more itensified or different for people with marginalized identities.  We will discuss how this affects us at Colgate and identify some strategies that can help us mitigate those feelings and reclaim our own sense of belonging.
