Abstract:

Are you a female engineer or a manager of female engineers? Imagine a life where you choose your own career path. You love what you do. You are an influencer, a go-to person at your company and in your field. You aren’t working ridiculous hours. You have a life outside of work. You may even have a couple of young children if you so choose, while still enjoying a well-paying, impactful career in engineering. As a fifteen-year engineering industry veteran and mom of 3, Stephanie Slocum uses a conversational and down-to-earth approach to teach you how to succeed as a female engineer: How to determine your strengths and use them for maximum influence. How to find your expert niche and use it to create the career (and life!) you deserve. Why the well-meaning career advice given to male engineers backfires for women, and how you can avoid those traps. How to have a career you love without sacrificing all your waking hours. How to neutralize gender bias while maximizing your earning potential. The one thing you must do to elevate your career to the next level. Each chapter concludes with actions you can do in 30 minutes or less for immediate results. As a female engineer herself, she knows first-hand the value of your time and has packed her years of experience, stories, and lessons learned into one concise, easy-to-read resource for other female engineers.
