Imposter Syndrome Awareness Day Saturday 13 April 2024

About International Imposter Syndrome Awareness Day


IISAD or International Imposter/Impostor Awareness Day (IISAD) was launched on April 13th 2021 by Lisa Ventura MBE, Nat Schooler and Kim-Adele in response to the rising number of people impacted by Imposter/Impostor Syndrome, to empower people to learn more about the phenomenon and to provide free resources and support.

It was so successful that is now an annual event, raising awareness and providing support to help people overcome their inner critic.

IISAD 2024 will take place on Saturday 13 April 2024. Click the link below to find out how to get involved in it.
