Event Description:
The Importance of Self-Empowerment

Nearly 
70 percent of the U.S. population has experienced imposter syndrome—a psychological term originally used to describe high-achieving women who attribute their accomplishments to luck instead of effort. This imposter syndrome leaves even the most successful and skilled people feeling like failures who will inevitably be found out as frauds. Dr. Britton’s talk on October 9 will focus on self-empowerment and identifying the intelligence and creativity within oneself.

“Often, women just need a confidence booster,” said Dr. Britton. “They don’t need help per se because they are smart and able – they just need to feel confident. When that happens, it’s an amazing transformation.”

Britton is the associate vice president of STEM professions at Southern New Hampshire University’s Global Campus. She is a computer scientist, software engineer and mathematician with experience in K-12 and higher education teaching, curriculum development and organizational leadership. Above all else, she is passionate about empowering others to reach their full potential.

The TechWomen Power Breakfast series is part of the Alliance's TechWomen|TechGirls initiative that builds on a strong community of women enthusiastic about technology and supporting efforts where girls are exploring STEM as a career or area of study. TechWomen|TechGirls holds programs for professional women to connect, collaborate and explore ideas around career development, technology initiatives and innovation. The initiative also deploys volunteers and mentors to support academic STEM initiatives and events for girls across New Hampshire. 

"We are excited to offer a place for women in the technology fields to come together and create lasting meaningful relationships while learning from each other's successes," said Candice Benson of Benson Consulting and chair of the TechWomen|TechGirls Committee. "We have a lot of brilliant women in our community and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate and support them with our power breakfast series."

The breakfast series will take place on the second Wednesday of every month.
