Guest Expert Workshop | Facilitator: Riyad Shahjahan, PhD
- Do you feel you're not "enough" or "don’t belong" in the academy?
- Do you feel fear to speak truth to power?
- Do you feel debilitated and cannot write (for days or months) after negative feedback or rejection, or due to the above feelings?
- Have you fallen into the shame and impostor trap?
In this webinar, we will discuss some of the common manifestations and pitfalls of the pervasive shame culture in the academy, and identify strategies to develop one's sense of worthiness to express one's ideas and become prolific as a minoritized scholar.
