      2019 Social Change Forum

      Imposter Complex is something that almost every person has dealt with. Simply, Imposter Complex is where an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud" and infiltrates celebrities, teachers, doctors, mothers, fathers, and everyone else. As agents of change, we are constantly being told by our inner voice that we are not good enough, someone else is going to know we’re a fraud, and to just stop. The 2019 Social Change Forum will provide participants an opportunity to face their Imposter Complex head on in a space of comfort and support. Tanya Geisler, this year’s morning speaker says, “The Imposter Complex lies. It lies and lies and lies. It tells you that you’re not ready yet.

We welcome and invite anyone to the Social Change Forum. Whether you are a government official, work at a nonprofit, lead a corporation, are a teacher, or a freshman in college, we encourage you to join us for this annual impactful and soul filling event.
