Professional STEM Women: Giving women the confidence, tools, and skills to have the career they want with 1 to 1, group and mastermind coaching and training. Although not true for every woman, I have found that some don’t have the same career success as their male peers. While there are many reasons for this, it is important that women have the tools, strategies, and knowledge on how to achieve their own career success.
