Today, I have a super fun talk with Zoey and Bia, co-hosts of the How to Rob a Bank Podcast, about how we can help girls and women in STEM and math to overcome imposter syndrome.

Bia and Zoey discuss:

  • What imposter syndrome is and how it can affect one’s success in math and STEM

  • The time-consuming pitfalls of being a perfectionist and ways to fight perfectionist tendencies

  • How playing the part of a “natural genius” at math can cause insecurities and stress when you finally hit work that challenges you

  • Why it’s better to build a support system than to try to succeed in math and STEM all on our own
