Counteract imposter phenomenon and stereotype threat

Invite colleagues and former students to share struggles and success strategies

As imposter phenomenon is marked by feelings of not being good enough for one’s environment and stereotype threat causes students to perform below their potential, a great way to reduce the negative impact of both is to invite former students to share their struggles and learn about how they overcame those challenges. Inviting former students to share their experiences can inspire current students, establish support and a sense of community, and provide resources for students to draw upon.
