Most organizational cultures have deeply ingrained messages that one's value and success in the organization is connected to achievement, perfectionism, and fast-paced implementation of tasks with no struggle.

If that sounds like you, you're not alone! Given these messages of white dominant culture, a perpetual feeling of self-doubt, self-critique and comparison to others abounds in the inner psyche of most staff.

Developing an Antiracist organizational culture requires the deep inner work to confront imposter syndrome in one's own self-talk, and visibilize the common trajectory of learning most people face - where a series of trial and error, mistakes, false starts, and experiments ultimately combine as one makes progress in their work tasks.

The more we normalize what actually happens for all of us, the less likely we will get stuck in a shame cycle holding ourselves and our colleagues to impossible standards.
