Absolutely! I think, though, that it's really important to disambiguate "impostor syndrome" from experiences of bias and discrimination. If someone from a marginalized group is feeling undermined or unsupported, there's a decent likelihood that they actually ARE being undermined or don't have the full support of their co-workers. If they did, we'd see much better retention over the long term. That's not impostor syndrome - that's discrimination.
