Are you an Indigenous, Black or Racialized (BIPOC) student who has been made to feel like you're not smart enough, and don't deserve to be at university? Why are BIPOC more likely to call out micro / macroaggressions we experience, but rarely talk to each other about the anxiety, depression and "impostor syndrome" that accompanies discrimination? A talk with BIPOC Learning Strategists, Profs, and Mentor Navigators.

  1. Discuss some of the common ways that impostor syndrome can manifest for Indigenous, Black and Racialized (BIPOC) students;
  2. Learn strategies to strengthen self-awareness & lessen the impact;
