why one STEM for all?
Are you tired of being passed over for promotions or ignored during meetings because you are a woman? Do you not want to have to prove yourself over and over again? Tired of "mansplaining" and needing to fit into the "old boys club" just to get ahead? Do you wish you could be recognized for what you do and not what gender you are? Do you want to have a fulfilling career and a family?
one STEM for all aims to help build a world where women and men experience the same career while working in STEM, one where both are supported, engaged and rewarded. I want to build a community of people who want to see women thrive, not just survive, in STEM careers. This is a place where you can come to be yourself and be open about what you want to get out of your career. We all want to be happy and fulfilled by our jobs, but for women in STEM, sometimes that isn’t a reality. We feel like we can’t be our authentic selves at work, or that we must “act like a man.” It can be stressful and exhausting to live this way – but you don’t have to!
It is no secret that men and women experience the world and communicate in different ways. This is even more apparent in STEM fields, where men still significantly outnumber women. one STEM for all aims to give you the advice that will help you love your job every day and come to work with a renewed sense of energy and passion. Maybe you are the only female on your team and you don't have a support system to push you further in your career. I want to be that support system for you and help you achieve your goals.
I am a female engineer and mother of two, who wants to see all women enjoy their careers and their lives, while meaningfully contributing to the worlds of science, technology, engineering and math. I have worked in retail, manufacturing, and consulting. I have worked in manufacturing plants, distribution centers, and corporate offices. I have worked with teams from the shop floor to executives, and I have learned secrets along the way to be happier and more fulfilled in my own career. I want to give you the secrets that I wish I had known when I started my career. I want you to be wildly successful and HAPPY!
