As you may know, I work as an engineer and am always interested in reading more about STEM especially when it involves women. We really need to get more women in the field because it’s lonely! (jk) While this book is probably more for a course and in a group setting, it certainly has a lot of information that is great to read on your own and information on how to advance that you can probably use in your own job even if it is not STEM related. (Or if you’re a dude.)
There is a plan lined out and reasons why women don’t take the lead, etc. Lots of interesting information and I will definitely be thinking about some and perhaps putting it in to play in my career.
I received a free e-copy in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
