On May 8th, Judy was the featured speaker in the Inspiring Women In STEM Forum for her talk "Go Ahead... Brag!" This forum is organized by Delaware Bio, Delaware Sustainable Chemistry Alliance, and the Technology Forum of Delaware, and sponsored by Ashland Water Technologies.
A successful STEM career is not only about doing great science – it is also about convincing and sharing with others why it is important and why we are the ones capable of doing it!
One way women can become successful STEM leaders is through bragging. But bragging gets a bad rap. Shouldn’t we be modest and let the work speak for itself or let others brag about us? NO - bragging is not the problem, being comfortable doing it is the challenge.
