According to new research, many in the nutrition and dietetics community experience impostor syndrome and have negative perceptions which can inhibit their desire to take advantage of career opportunities, pursue career advancement, or seek entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship opportunities. Impostor syndrome is pervasive across race and ethnicity, genders, and ages - affecting individuals from their time in school, throughout their career, and even up to retirement. Attendees will be engaged through interactive case study activities to deconstruct root causes of why dietitians and dietetic students may experience impostor syndrome, review common thoughts and feelings associated with impostorism, and specify how we can all work towards overcoming feelings of self-doubt that limit professional achievement and success!
