Coffee Confessionals: Breaking Out of Imposter Syndrome

Moderated by Christina Raia and Bri Castellini of the Breaking Out of Breaking In podcast

When: Friday, April 29th 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET (60 minutes)

GET PASS (All-Access and Special Events)

Event Description: Pulling from submitted confessions by filmmakers and encouraging attendees to weigh in live, Christina and Bri will moderate a conversation about how to better understand, confront, and overcome imposter syndrome, based on their podcast episode on the same subject.

Event Structure: After an introduction to the moderators and their podcast, Christina and Bri use the submitted confessions to structure the event around instances of imposter syndrome that feel similar to one another, first unpacking the anonymous ones amongst ourselves but ensuring there’s space if anyone in the audience has something to advise or contribute. Then, we’ll ask for submitters and attendees who’d like to speak about their own experiences and struggles with imposter syndrome, moderating a safe space discussion to unpack this awful phenomenon together, ending the discussion with some actionable strategies to be mindful of its encroachment in the future.
