Why we exist

75% of women experience Imposter Syndrome

Despite progress in gender equality globally, women still face many internal and external barriers in the workplace. From diminished confidence and Imposter Syndrome, to a lack of role models in leadership positions, the high costs of childcare and more social and economic factors.

These barriers are hard to overcome. But it is possible.

At The Women’s Vault, we exist to be a driving force for gender equality, empowering women to find confidence, overcome Imposter Syndrome and lead happier, more fulfilled lives.

We support women at an organisational and individual level with keynote speeches, coaching, courses and diversity and inclusion strategies.

It can be hard making the change from full time to part time, compressed or staggered hours (or other types of flexible working). So here’s some quick tips on protecting your non-work day or hours. It’s important we set our boundaries and set expectations for both you and your employer, as well as your colleagues who may also work flexibly. If you start to check and reply to Teams messages on your day off, then should your colleague too?

The words I needed to hear this week, three weeks away from maternity leave…I hope these bring you some comfort too x

Creating a new dialogue with your Imposter can be so helpful. You can say things like:
- Thanks for that, I used to lack confidence in myself, but now I believe in myself…
- I know I can do this and I’m learning and growing everyday…
- I’m grateful for this opportunity and I’m going to make sure I balance my time, energy and not work myself into the ground to prove my worth…
There are so many self-affirming and confidence-boosting things you can say to yourself to create a new narrative in your mind. 
What do you say that’s helpful in these moments where your Imposter shows up? I’d love to hear. Olivia x

Something a bit different today…
Notes from my journal that I’ve just shared with my subscribers. Here’s an excerpt for you too. PS I’ve got one spot left in Feb for either one client or a corporate speaking slot. Please get in touch Asap if you’d like to take it!

Living with Imposter Syndrome is like being in a boxing ring with an opponent who is far stronger. Where they attack the weaker player until they are broken, bleeding on the floor and confidence is shattered.
They call you names and say things like: 'If only you were like her, you'd be so much better at your job...'.
I allow myself to be beaten up by my Imposter, almost continuously. I forget to treat myself with kindness, or compassion. It's easier to bruise and batter myself with criticism.
Some days the Imposter will be magnified like when I'm the most 'junior' person in the room. My voice constricts, I feel anxious, wondering if what I say will make sense or be clear. Other days I'm filled with confidence. I'm always on tenterhooks - wondering if my Imposter will show up that day…

There are many things you can do as a Manager supporting your team member/s to return to work after maternity leave. Here are some ones to get you started and reflect the conversations I’ve had with clients on they wish they had been supported, or what they didn’t know like how to organise KiT days…
Right now I’m working with a company to coach all of their returners and at the end of next year, I will have supported 10 of their women to return. If you’re a HR Manager or you’d like to find out more then send me a DM.
I’d also love to hear, if you’re a Manager, what things do you do to support women back into work, or what do you wish your Manager had done…? Let’s chat in the comments ⬇️
