Crucial Conversations: Including Implications of Race, Gender and Power: Application Deadline

In this highly interactive workshop, we will examine how conversations become difficult when the stakes are high, emotions escalate and we fear damage to relationships or other negative consequences.  Our approach will include attention to the ways conversations can become even more challenging when there are differences of race, gender, power or authority. Participants are encouraged to bring specific examples of real situations they are facing (or have faced in the past) for analysis in discussions and practice in break out room exercises.

Impostor Syndrome: "Am I An Impostor? And If So, So What?"

An estimated 70% of people experience impostor feelings at some point in their lives. It is widespread across academic campuses, and Stanford is no exception. A campus survey by Professor Margot Gerritsen showed that many students experience the feelings or fear of being a fake, of not having what it takes, the fear of disappointing advisors, of being "found out" to not be as smart as they were thought to be. She will share her findings and some personal experiences with the impostor syndrome, and discuss some ways to overcome it, or at least make steps toward it.
