What we're about

This group is for women studying or working in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. This group will meet monthly to work on the soft skills that we all need a little help on.

Women in STEM bookclub - Selfie: How We Became So Self-Obsessed

This bookclub is for women in STEM to explore workplace related themes that are centered on women, STEM issues and leadership. Through these book explorations, we share experiences, exchange new ideas and get support for whatever challenges we are currently facing. Book: Selfie: How We Became So Self-Obsessed and What It's Doing to Us By: Will Storr We live in the age of the individual. Every day, we’re bombarded with depictions of the beautiful, successful, slim, socially conscious, and extroverted individual that our culture has decided is the perfect self, and we berate ourselves when we don’t measure up. This model of the perfect self and the impossibly high standards it sets can be extremely dangerous. People are suffering under the torture of this impossible fantasy, and unprecedented social pressure is leading to increases in depression and suicide. Journalist and novelist Will Storr began to wonder about this perfect self that torments so many of us: Where does this ideal come from? Why is it so powerful? Is there any way to break its spell? To answer these questions, Storr takes the reader on a journey from the shores of Ancient Greece, through the Christian Middle Ages, to the self-esteem evangelists of 1980s California, the rise of narcissism and the “selfie” generation, and right up to the era of hyper-individualism in which we live now. Selfie tells the epic tale of the person we all know so intimately―because it’s us.

Women in STEM Bookclub - Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

Through these book explorations, we share experiences, exchange new ideas and get support for whatever challenges we are currently facing. Book: Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance By: Angela Duckworth The daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of “genius,” Angela Duckworth is now a celebrated researcher and professor. It was her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience that led to her hypothesis about what really drives success: not genius, but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.
