Women in Leadership

Women and especially women of color need to see others in leadership positions in organizations. It matters. In 2020, women of color held 3% of C-suite positions compared to 66% of white men.

We’re so used to being one of the few, that we get tired of being disappointed by it.

We’re busy doing our work, aiming to perform at our highest level, and we don’t want to bring attention to ourselves that isn’t about the valuable contributions we’re making.

We were taught to make sure our work speaks louder than anything else and to not add “distractions” into the mix.

You may not share these thoughts openly with others, but you might have them.

It’s not surprising then that research shows women of color experience more imposter type thoughts than others do.

So we have to find a way to navigate those thoughts, recognizing the historical and real systemic challenges, so we can thrive and feel as grounded and good as possible about our work and ourselves 🙌🏽

I’m sharing more recent research about imposter thoughts and how women of color and women experience them.

I’m also sharing four additional strategies for navigating imposter syndrome: the power of the word “yet”, recognizing when imposter thoughts arise and what to do about them, and more.

Because we do ultimately have a sphere of control. So the question is what do you want to explore further within that sphere to feel more secure, confident, and centered?
