Encouraging more women to go for a career in STEM is not as a big problem as it used to be. Academic data shows more women are getting into STEM programs than in the past. So, what’s the problem?
Most of them leave the profession within the first five years after graduating. This means more women are getting into STEM…but they’re not staying in it.
Today’s guest set out to change that. With nearly a decade of experience as a structural engineer, Sophie Warwick struggled with connecting and networking with others simply because she was different from everybody else — one of the few women in the room, if not the only.
After creating a support group at her own company at the time and a nonprofit to build communities for women in engineering, she decided to start her own company to help women thrive in a male-dominated field.
The Thoughtful Co. was then born. It’s a company whose mission is to improve gender equity in the workplace, creating a community for women in STEM and helping them thrive with individualized career coaching service offerings.
