Science, Girls & Stereotypes

Maria Kauffman

Does your daughter love science?

Or do you feel like she (or you) have been affected by the olddddd negative stereotype that persisted for so long saying women and girls aren’t ‘as good’ at science or math?

Do you want to support your daughter to bust stereotypes, and break any barriers she wants in historically male dominated professions?

We’re getting in to it today, mama.

What does it really take when you’re the only woman or girl in a room? At a job? In a class you love?

How do we support our daughters to be all-in with their passions, when it isn’t necessarily cool?

I’ve got such an amazing guest on for you today. Maria Kauffman is a mama in our community (her amazing daughter Anna is headed off to college this fall!), and a brilliant pioneer (though she didn’t necessarily set out to be one): her love of engineering lead her into a male dominated profession. She is devoted to creating spaces for other women and girls to follow behind her, especially through the way we educate the next generation.

and we want to hear your take.

We need each other, mama.
