S1: E6 – In Conversation With Kathy Griffin on overcoming impostor syndrome

Series 1, episode 6 - In Conversation With.... Kathy Griffin on overcoming impostor syndrome

This week sees the final episode of our new ‘In Conversation With’ podcast series and we close with a fantastically open, honest and insightful conversation with Kathy Griffin, Chief Risk Officer of the consumer arm of Fintech organisation, Greensill.

Our Head of Social Media, Dinah Williams, holds a frank yet uplifting talk with Kathy about the highs and lows Kathy has experienced throughout her 25-year career in banking and financial services. We talk about the impact of unconscious bias in this sector, and that while understanding that many of us want to do good, we all have our own unconscious biases and to overcome these can be uncomfortable but necessary to create truly diverse and inclusive teams.

Kathy also discusses living with anxiety and impostor syndrome – overcoming that little voice that constantly tells you, you aren’t good enough. And why, in a time when so many of UK’s workforces face financial hardship she’s proud to represent Greensill’s latest venture in supporting NHS staff to avoid a financial crisis.


In Conversation with… is a podcast series in celebration of the fantastic work being actioned in the world of diversity and inclusion.

Through hard-hitting topics, sharing of personal experiences and being comfortable with having uncomfortable conversations, In Diverse Company brings a refreshing series of weekly interviews with change champions across the industry.
