Join us on September 30th for our fourth annual Women in Bioscience!
The event will feature an interactive workshop, networking, and a moderated panel discussion of acclaimed female scientists and entrepreneurs focusing on success stories, career advantages and obstacles for Maine women in bioscience.
The panel discussion will take place virtually via Zoom, and will feature Aileen Huang-Saad, PhD (The Roux Institute), Stacey Harris (Consigli Construction Co.), Melissa Glenn, PhD (Colby College), Joan Gordon (Maine Molecular Quality Controls), and Kristy Townsend, PhD (Ohio State University and University of Maine, moderator).
The panel will be followed by an interactive workshop “Imposter Syndrome: Understanding and Coping with a Potential Barrier to Success” lead by Shannon McCoy, PhD (University of Maine). Have you ever felt that your successes were due to “luck” or that somehow evaluators have been fooled and soon you will be exposed as an “imposter”? While the term “imposter syndrome” sounds like pop psychology, it is useful in identifying a cluster of psychological processes that may pose barriers to success for oneself or one’s students. Imposter syndrome involves perceiving the self as incompetent despite objective evidence of competence and often occurs among those who are high achieving. We will explore topics such as the fear of failure, feeling excluded in the workplace, feeling unworthy, and provide coping strategies to internalize and focus on success.
A networking reception will be held at 5PM at The Roux Institute’s collaboration café and deck that overlooks Casco Bay. Registration for networking event: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/women-in-bioscience-tickets-173680341577
