Uncovering Truffles: The Scarcity and Value of Women in STEM

Resource Title: Uncovering Truffles: The Scarcity and Value of Women in STEM
Description/Annotation: Have you ever glanced around to realize you’re the only woman in the room? Does a small voice in your head whisper you don’t belong? Do you fear for your daughter in math and science? The research says female students and professionals in STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math - are angry, frustrated and discouraged. No one knows these swirling emotions better than engineering psychologist Dr. Melanie Polkosky, who worked for over a decade in the STEM field where women are most underrepresented. In Uncovering Truffles, Polkosky examines the underlying reasons girls shy away from math and science and over half of female professionals leave their careers before the age of 40. Following a review of cutting-edge cognitive-neuroscience research and mythological perspectives on femininity, Polkosky offers twenty practical lessons to uncover the priceless value of women who integrate their masculine and feminine aspects, along with a hopeful vision for the future of inclusive work. Uncovering Truffles combines searing memoir with tools and inspiration that encourage women to design engaging and meaningful careers, increase gender diversity and establish supportive, healthy workplaces. Written with wisdom and startling honesty, Polkosky offers a clarion call to action for any forward-thinking individual who believes STEM, and business in general, can be a mechanism for serving humanity’s greater good.
