Let’s also name the elephant in the room! Sometimes we all experience a bit of imposter syndrome. At Economy, we lean into this feeling. We believe that imposter syndrome is a manifestation of the oppression many of us face day to day. You don’t have to tick all the boxes for each role to apply. If you feel a pull towards a specific role and believe you could make a difference we would love to hear from you!
