Despite academic success, promotions, and outstanding accomplishments, high achieving people often find themselves struggling with a nagging feeling that they will be ‘found out’ or unmasked as a fraud. Imposter syndrome is the internal suspicion that one’s success is a matter of luck, timing, charm, or accident. Those that suffer from this nagging voice often feel as though they have somehow managed to slip through the cracks undetected and that it is just a matter of time before other people discover they don’t belong. Imposter syndrome affects us all at one point or another, and has historically held women back from growth in the work place. How has this affected you and what have you done to work through this experience?
