Women STEM Role Models to Follow

8/20/2021
In past episodes, we’ve discussed the need for female role models in STEM fields as a way of bridging the gender gap and allowing female STEM careers to be more open.

The Secret to Achieving Work-Life Balance

7/30/2021
We’ve all heard people brag about how great of a work/life balance they have, as if juggling all these things is bad.
