Insecurity is a Social Issue | Svenja Weber

IN Focus

Am I Good Enough? Re-thinking Imposter Syndrome in Women



Feelings of insecurity at work and the nagging worry that we are not quite as smart, informed or competent enough as we ought to be or as others might think are familiar to most of us, irrespective of our gender. However, there is a perception that feelings of insecurity are more prevalent in women. In addition, feelings of self-doubt are often seen as a personal failing, leading individuals to turn inward in an attempt to overcome them. 

However, there’s actually plenty of evidence that insecurity is a social problem - a rational reaction to cues from our environment. When understood this way, in order to overcome our insecurities we need to reach outward, forging more authentic connections with those around us.
