    Women STEM Role Models to Follow

    Women STEM Role Models to Follow

    In past episodes, we’ve discussed the need for female role models in STEM fields as a way of bridging the gender gap and allowing female STEM careers to be more open. This is an incredibly important topic in the STEM fields to allow for more inclusion, to erase the pay gap in genders, and to allow female STEM leaders to stay in the STEM fields longer. There are not enough female role models in the STEM fields, but those that do exist deserve to be celebrated. That’s why episode 26 of This Green Planet is about a few of my favorite female STEM role models! 
    In this episode of This Green Planet, I’m sharing the importance of celebrating female Role Models in STEM fields and shedding light on a few of them. 
     I cover the following female role models: 
    Rashi Khurana - Shutterstock’s Vice President of EngineeringLiz Sarah - Chair of the National Women’s Business CouncilJordana Abraham - Founder of BetchesMaria C. Carrillo - Chief Science Officer of the Alzheimer’s AssociationAnnie Chow - CEO of AT&T BusinessSonya Reed - A Nissan Vice PresidentMy goal in this new series is to provide motivating and relatable examples of women in STEM fields so that you may share them with younger generations or be inspired to pursue STEM fields further yourself.

    How Women in STEM are Changing the Business World

    How Women in STEM are Changing the Business World

    In the last 5 years, there have been significant improvements to how we inspire young girls to get into STEM fields and find interest there, and in turn, this has completely changed the fields relating to STEM significantly. 
    You’ve heard me talk before about how women in STEM have different skillsets and have different perspectives than our male counterparts when it comes to how we think and feel, which ultimately adds a new dynamic to STEM fields. But there’s no secret that a large gender gap still remains in the STEM fields. That’s why episode 25 of This Green Planet is about how women in STEM are completely changing the business world as a whole! 
    In this episode of This Green Planet, I’m sharing the importance of women in STEM and ways you are probably seeing the STEM fields change around you because of the females in the field. 
    I cover some of the following topics: 
    In the last five years, there have been significant efforts made to increase awareness and interest in STEM fields for young girls but there is a significant gender gap in the industries.Women enter higher education at much higher rates than men but only earn 30-35% of the nation’s bachelor’s degrees in STEM fields.By increasing the number of women who are pursuing STEM fields, we’ll decrease the surplus of unfilled STEM jobs that exist right now and benefit every business in our economy.This world has been created by and for men instead of men and women, and I give a few examples like how metabolic rates of men mean the office spaces are too cold for most women, and others, in this podcast episode.With the growing demand for more STEM field jobs, and the increased importance of STEM fields to save our planet, create and innovate for our nation, and more, STEM fields are expanding without a proper female presence to sustain it. This episode will encourage you to be that female role model, increase awareness and understanding of the need for women in this field, and more. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on sustainable, STEM business practices and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
