GamePlay Space presents: Always Among Us: Combating Imposter Syndrome in the Game Industry. This event is part of the Health & Wellness Program and is FREE FOR ALL.

The imposter syndrome is something many of us may be familiar with. It may not be something that you have experienced yourself, however you can be sure that those around you have!

So what exactly is imposter syndrome? Who does it affect? What role does it play in the games industry? What can we do to help ourselves and those around us?

Learn about this and more in the workshop with Dr. Kristen Toohill. Attendees will have the opportunity to reflect on and share their own experiences of imposter syndrome. Together we will come up with solutions to help on a personal level, in teams, and at the level of the organization.

* Note to all attendees: This Lunch & Learn will be recorded for internal purposes only.

The Speaker

Dr Kristen Toohill:

Dr. Kristen Toohill believes that games are powerful tools for organizational development. She writes books that use the interactivity and immersion of games to solve issues that face organizations today, such as reducing unconscious bias and learning 21st-century career skills. She also uses games as training and development tools in organizations and classrooms, and consults with organizations that understand the importance of fun and joy in the workplace.

Kristen worked as a Quality Assurance Tester and SCRUM Master on a MMORPG, designed a QA system at Green Tree Games, assisted in game design at Revelian, and worked as an associate producer for the video-game version of an organizational development card game at Happy Brain Science.

Kristen received her Doctorate in Leadership Psychology and Organizational Development at William James College and her Master’s degree in Business Innovation from Northeastern University.
