Counteract imposter phenomenon and stereotype threat

Provide skill-building opportunities to increase success

As imposter phenomenon is marked by feelings of not being good enough for the environment one is in, and stereotype threat may cause students or colleagues to perform below their potential, a positive way to reduce the negative impact of both is to increase student and staff confidence in their skills and capabilities. When people have a healthy confidence in their ability to succeed in academic and work-related environments, they are more likely to persevere when faced with challenges.
