The Imposters Club
Season 5 Episode 2: How do we recover from the #girlboss and hustle culture?


The Imposters Club returns for our 5th season, and this time we’re talking WORK. Sinéad’s pivoting her career, Melissa’s returning from maternity leave and the whole world is talking about how we can work better.


Let us take you on a little trip down memory lane. It’s 2014: we’re trying to get our foot on the professional ladder, tentatively calling ourselves feminists, and holding an Urban Outfitters mug that says ‘you have the same 24 hours as Beyoncé’. It is the era of the #girlboss. How did she shape the professional ambitions of a generation of young women? Has hustle culture burnt us out? And with time of death officially called on the Girlboss in 2020, what do we do with that vision of work now?


In this episode we’re joined by Seyda Karimpour, founder of Seasons of Work, a community platform for multi-passionates who want to push back against hustle culture and find their own rhythm in work and life.
