In this engaging episode, we explore the term “imposter syndrome” with speaker and writer, Jodi-Ann Burey.
The term “imposter syndrome” is often used to communicate a sense of inadequacy that an individual may feel in a professional setting. After reviewing the original research that birthed this term, Laura and Jodi-Ann discuss why the term is an inaccurate portrayal of the experience of Black women because it does not account for the full environmental landscape that Black women have to navigate in the workplace and beyond. Jodi-Ann offers a pointed take on reframing imposter syndrome and turns the responsibility of fixing imposter syndrome back to leaders and organizations.
Additionally, Jodi-Ann provides rich insight on the power of Black women’s agency and why she embraces the term “disrupter.” Ultimately, she encourages us to use more affirming language that more fully encompasses our experiences as Black women. Tune in and be enlightened!
