Impostrix Podcast validates (smart, talented AF, and often over-qualified) professionals of color who navigate imposter syndrome and racial toxicity in their careers. Through personal anecdotes, historical facts, and scientific data, Civil Rights Attorney and Racial Equity Consultant Whitney Knox Lee and special guests explore how race and racism impact their careers, their personal lives, and their joy. Fear not, this show is about pushing through anyway! So here, we share accessible language, tools, tips, and “fake it till you make it” tricks to inspire you to protect your energy, embrace your power, and honor your worth.

Here, you will learn ways to overcome and leverage imposter syndrome,  you will be better able to identify when and why your work culture is working against you, and you will hear personal examples of when guests have succeeded (and failed) at implementing countermeasures. And, we will talk self-advocacy and conflict resolution to prepare you to confidently address racial toxicity when it arises. 

Find support, resist gaslighting, own your space, and prepare to lead. 

Be Validated.
