One of the most interesting aspects of the ongoing discussion about the obstacles women face in professional life has been the rise, over the last decade, of the discourse surrounding imposter syndrome.

The concept, in the unlikely event you’re unfamiliar with it, is the pervasive belief held by successful people, very often and perhaps usually women, that they are in fact frauds who have managed to dupe their way to the top. And we often internalize messages that we aren’t good enough, and a sense of our failings can undercut our ability to accept our own achievements and successes.
