- Stop Telling Women They Have Imposter Syndrome
The concept of "imposter syndrome" has been disproportionately applied as a diagnosis for women's feelings of self-doubt and anxiety in the workplace. However, the original research defining this syndrome in the 1970s failed to account for the impact of systemic biases related to aspects like race, class, gender and ethnicity. Rather than viewing women's experiences through a lens of individual pathology, Ruchika argues we must create more inclusive workplace environments that value diverse leadership styles and identities.
