STEM is where it's at—but how do you get there, especially if you're female or minority? Melissa, an engineer herself, talks with some great women who work in a broad range of STEM fields about their career paths. Everybody could use a mentor, and this podcast gives students role models, good advice on educational requirements, ideas of what kinds of jobs are out there and what skills and qualities they require, and what these women enjoy about their work. I love the recent episodes about women working in climate change-related fields.
