The first of the four programs in the series presented by the Women in the Profession committee will feature a discussion of non-fiction books that address themes or topics of interest to women in the legal profession.

Many accomplished women suffer from the imposter syndrome, a phenomenon that prevents them from believing in their own worth and achievements. They feel like frauds or phonies in professional venues and rationalize their successes as being due to luck, timing or incorrect assessments of their skills and intelligence. Joyce Roché will lead a discussion of her honest and compelling book, The Empress Has No Clothes, at this program. In her book, Ms. Roché shares stories of her struggles with the imposter syndrome as an African American woman who rose from humble circumstances to become a highly-placed executive in the corporate and nonprofit worlds. Based on her experience and that of other top executives who share their own stories, she offers valuable strategies and techniques for conquering the self doubt that prevents many from enjoying and advancing in their careers.

Moderator: CHARMAINE L. SLACK, Jones Day

Speaker: JOYCE ROCHÉ, President and CEO, Girls Inc.; Author, The Empress Has No Clothes: Conquering Self Doubt to Embrace Success

Sponsored by: Committee on Women in the Profession, Lori Pines, Chair
