Raising Resilient and Fierce Women

“And though she be but little, she is fierce.”- William Shakespeare

I am a new mommy of an incredibly curious, brave, and happy 14 month year-old daughter. I wish I could continue to keep her experiencing the world this way. However, I know as a minority woman innovating and trying to make a difference in the world the journey is extremely difficult, often mean, and in some cases dangerous. That is why it is no surprise that the research has found that few minorities and women pursue STEM careers and those who do often quit. To ensure my daughter continues her journey to brilliance, I know passion and intelligence isn’t enough. She will need resilience, fierceness, and continuous support and mentorship from other women. I am sharing these ideas and more in an upcoming keynote, The Path of the EdSHEro, for the free online conference, EFL Talks: Inspiring Women in ELT, on March 10 and 11th.
