The Problem With Imposter Syndrome

Katrina Lake, Stitch Fix
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Stitch Fix founder and CEO Katrina Lake argues that imposter syndrome isn’t a pathology of the person experiencing exclusion, but instead indicates a problem with the power dynamics that makes certain people feel excluded. The onus is on the community or company to be more inclusive, rather than on members of underrepresented groups to “solve” their imposter syndrome.
