    266 Making New Rules in STEM Careers with Sangeeta

    266 Making New Rules in STEM Careers with Sangeeta

    On the Well Woman Show this week, I talk to D. Sangeeta. She is the founder and CEO of Gotara, a global career growth platform for women in STEM+. Its mission is to close the gender gap and help STEM+ women stay and thrive in their careers. It’s a passion for Sangeeta because she came very close to being one of the 40% of STEM women who leave their careers within the first five years. The materials scientist said that at 32 she felt she couldn’t continue to navigate the roadblocks being thrown in front of her. Luckily, a mentor reached out, gave her guidance, and she stayed in her career for another two decades, achieving 26 patents, leading global teams of 5,000+ with budgets of more than $200 million. She worked at GE Aviation, Nielsen, and most recently was VP of Connections at Amazon. Sangeeta's ultimate dream though was to build a scalable, for-profit career growth platform so 30+ million STEM+ women around the world have access to the advice they need to stay and thrive in their careers.
    Today on the show we discuss:
    The need for equality and representation for women in STEM.
    Why do women need to get a voice at the table while in college and in their careers?
    AND How we can encourage younger women to get into STEM?

    262: Pro-Justice Storytelling with Eva Fernandes

    How do you share your life in an honest, justice-informed and engaging way? That's the question Eva Fernandes is trying to solve.

    How she became a pro-justice storytelling coach.

    Slowing down and being intentional in life, business, and online.

You speak my language

When I listen to Giovanna and her guests, it's like a reminder that I'm not alone in my thinking. We need more empowered, steering, and balanced women and this show is the cream of the crop. Thank you!

Kay Fern ,

Inspiring!

I had to research podcasts for an internship when I found this one. Giovanna covers a variety of topics, but she keeps it very conversational. She also hosts many different kinds of women, and I can learn a lot from all of them! Very glad I found this podcast, and I will listen to it in my own time.
