Did you know that Imposter syndrome was introduced in 1978 by psychologists, Pauline Rose Clance, PhD, ABPP & Suzanne Imes, PhD. (Resource: mindbodygreen.com/articles/imposter-syndrome)?
Imposter syndrome is defined as a person dismissing one’s achievements and viewing it as “luck”.

I’m going to be exposed of being a fraud

3 Keys to Show Love During Women’s History Month
As a woman and leader in the military and business, it’s an honor to celebrate Women’s History Month. This month is filled with endless opportunities to recognize and honor the talents, strengths, and accomplishments of women throughout history. To spread the love by sharing ideas for inspirational action, I’ll share three simple ways to show love for Women’s History Month:
1. Educate Yourself: Invest time in learning about inspirational women who challenged social norms and made significant contributions throughout history. Decide how you want to consume your learning that’s intentional. You can learn in several ways through reading physical or eBooks, listening to educational podcasts, watching documentaries, or joining communities (online or local events) that showcase their accomplishments.
2. Share Your Knowledge: Now that you know, it’s time to share! Share in your own unique way stories of inspirational women that continue to make history. You can share in many forms of medium (blogs, email series, long or short form video). Create connection and relevance using your own content through conversation, social media platforms, podcasts, community themes, celebrations, etc. The list is endless!
3. Celebrate Women 365 Days of the Year: We celebrate the lives and contributions of women during Women’s History Month, but it’s important we’re intentional with recognizing women beyond Women’s History Month. Let’s focus on celebrating and empowering women around the world every day of the year in life, career, and business of all industries!
