Women in the workforce face problems daily, whether it be the glass ceiling or a prejudice that is held against them. To find a solution, we must first find the problem. Why do women have a harder time making advancements? Using a scoping literature review, this study examines how a lack of confidence or self-esteem can affect these women. It also explores how these factors can lead to a fear of success or feeling of not belonging that triggers the impostor phenomenon, a cycle of self-doubt that prevents these women from taking initiative.
