Understanding Imposter Syndrome and Befriending the Inner Critic: A Guide for In-House Counsel


Event Description

 Law is a demanding profession. Even the most confident of us can harbor feelings that we aren’t good enough and don’t belong. How can we help ourselves — and those around us — turn this around?


Join us Monday, August 5, 2024, at 12pm ET / 9 am PT with Shauna C. Bryce, former Chief Legal Talent Officer, Chief Diversity Officer, and in-house / law firm lawyer, and with Kamilah Exum, a former Federal Reserve attorney, tax attorney, and AmLaw 100 pro bono program director.


Shauna and Kamilah, both lawyer coaches at Bryce Legal, will discuss:


  • What Imposter Syndrome is
  • How common Imposter Syndrome is and why lawyers are particularly impacted
  • How the enduring legacies of discrimination exacerbate Imposter Syndrome
  • How Imposter Syndrome can spiral when the Inner Critic runs amuck
  • Why we should make friends with the Inner Critic and reap the benefits–and how to do so

A key takeaway will be five practical steps an individual can use to work through Imposter Syndrome.
