Description

Welcome to Women in Tech York vs Impostor Syndrome!

We are a community of like-minded people, studying, working or interested in technology. Our goal is to run events in which we can share our knowledge and interests as well as encourage and empower one another.

There will be a free buffet (including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options), thanks to our sponsors Isotoma and Mitrefinch.


This month Women in Tech York are joining the fight against Impostor Syndrome!

Imposter Syndrome is a fear of being exposed as a fraud and a psychological doubt of your accomplishments. Studies show that Impostor Syndrome adversely affects women, especially those working in technology, science or academia. This month we’ll look at how we can recognise it in ourselves and others, so we can all tackle Impostor Syndrome together!
