WISHED December book club: Being successful by overcoming imposter syndrome

Photo of the cover of "The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women"For the professional women (and men) who experience the confidence-zapping “Impostor Syndrome,” Valerie Young offers an empowering plan to overcome the needless self-doubt that keeps them from feeling intelligent and competent in her book, The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women.

This is the December book club selection for Women in Science and Humanities Earning Doctorates (WISHED); students can sign out a hardcopy from the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women or email Megan Adler at mla80@case.edu for their own copy.

The discussion will take place Friday, Dec. 1, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women at the Tinkham Veale University Center.

The first 20 students to register for the event will be entered for the opportunity to participate in a coaching session with Young during the event. Selected persons will be notified by email before the event to confirm participation.

WISHED, the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women and the School of Medicine Graduate Education Office will host this event.
