Our Plural Selves: No Cause for Feelings of Fraudulence
October 3 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
In Sheryl Sandburg’s Lean In, she writes that she first heard of imposter syndrome — the fear that we must not actually deserve any praise we receive — at a speech given by Peggy McIntosh, Ph.D., in 1991. McIntosh, a senior research scientist at the Wellesley Centers for Women, began writing about this phenomenon in the 1980s and is still adding to her scholarship on the matter. On Thursday, October 26, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., she will discuss her new paper in the “Feeling Like a Fraud” series during the presentation, “Our Plural Selves: No Cause for Feelings of Fraudulence,” at Cheever House, 828 Washington St, Wellesley. This program is part of the fall Lunchtime Seminar Series hosted by the Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW), a program of Wellesley College.
The Lunchtime Seminar Series at the Wellesley Centers for Women is free and open to the public. Most programs are held Thursdays, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. at the Centers’ Cheever House location (828 Washington St, Wellesley) and parking is available on site. Guests are invited to bring their lunches, and WCW will provide tea and coffee. For accessibility questions, contact Disability Services at Wellesley College at [email protected]
