~ AAG SECG / NZAG Webinar – 7th September - Time to take action: dealing with imposter syndrome

~ AAG welcomes new team member – Alina Hinton-Tooley

~ Policy and Practice Update – August 2021

Don’t let imposter syndrome sabotage you!

If you’re an early career researcher chances are you’ve likely felt or at least heard of “imposter syndrome”. It is the feeling of doubt in your competency, knowledge and ability to contribute. Do I belong here? Am I a fraud? What if I get found out?

It’s time to take action and learn how to deal with your imposter syndrome - Register for the webinar which will run from 11.30am to 12.30pm (AEST) on 7th September.

AAG's Student & Early Career Group (SECG) and New Zealand Association of Gerontology (NZAG) present three researchers who will share their experiences and insights on how to recognise these thoughts and turn them into something more positive.

How: Webinar – presented by AAG SECG & NZAG
When: Tuesday 7th September - 11.30am to 12.30pm (AEST)
Who: Dr Rachel Ambagtsheer, A/Prof Andy Towers (NZAG), and Dr Meredith Perry
