STEM is a rewarding field, but it can sometimes be pretty overwhelming. And for women, it can be even worse. Why? Minority. There are only a few examples to make younger women believe they have “what it takes” to be successful, without giving up on their personal life and family.

Today’s guest, Laura Prieto, a civil and environmental engineer, experienced this firsthand. When she got pregnant the first time, she didn’t have any examples of other women in STEM who were successful in their career and had kids. She experienced self-doubt, impostor syndrome, etc.

Now, she set out to help other female professionals with that problem. She founded Sparkle STEM Connect, an online community and membership service for women in STEM to share their experiences with like-minded people and educate themselves on practical topics they’ll need in life.
