A site jointly sponsored by Arizona State University and the National Science Foundation to give women in STEM careers [science, technology, engineering, mathematics] resources and advice for dealing with issues such as facing a cold or isolating departmental climate, balancing career and personal demands, handling advisor issues, and/or staying motivated and productive despite delays and setbacks to research progress. One noteworthy resource: more than 180 video interviews with successful women in STEM who have completed their doctoral degrees and progressed into STEM careers. Each woman discusses and reflects upon her experiences during graduate school
