Young BIPOC employees are more likely to feel imposter syndrome.

Mar 08 2022

Young BIPOC employees are more likely to feel imposter syndrome. Imposter syndrome is “the feeling or experience of feeling like a fraud,” and according to the Harvard Business Review, one-third of young people regularly experience imposter syndrome. But it’s also the “direct result” of biases like systemic racism and classism, with women of color the most susceptible to experience imposter syndrome, according to research from Heriot-Watt University and the School for CEOs. A study from the International Journal of Doctoral Studies also found that gender and race play a huge role in Black women experiencing imposter syndrome. According to one psychologist, while imposter syndrome can stem from childhood roles and family dynamics, workplace environments can “double down” on the feeling for BIPOC employees since many of them feel like they don’t belong. The same expert added that Black people who experience imposter syndrome also have higher levels of discrimination-related depression, and HBR revealed that combating imposter syndrome isn’t necessarily about individuals fixing themselves, but for companies to “create an environment that fosters a number of different leadership styles and where diversity of racial, ethnic, and gender identities is viewed as just as professional as the current model.” (Yahoo!
