for women in engineering 

Be heard, gain respect, and have a career YOU WANT on your terms 

Are you tired of not being heard or appreciated? 

Are you working hard, yet not getting ahead?
Do you have great ideas, and are frustrated that no one is listening to you?

Are you stuck in a career rut?

Do you feel isolated and alone, as one of the very few women at work?

You're Smart and Hard Working...

...Then why do you feel stuck, undervalued, and exhausted with the constant effort to prove yourself?


You were excited to start your career. You love - and are good at - the technical aspects of your job. But, you've noticed that you are treated differently than your male coworkers in dozens of subtle ways. You've been talked over in meetings, had your ideas ignored, and pretended to ignore sexist comments and jokes. On your engineering team, you've been asked to take notes or create presentations instead of doing the technical work you love. 


You are working hard but aren't getting recognized for your efforts. You feel a constant need to prove yourself. Your relationships with your friends, partner, family, and your own health are suffering. You don't have time for anything but the next deadline, and feel like you are in survival mode much of the time. Despite being extremely busy, you feel like you're stuck in rut and aren't sure how to get out of it.


You never thought engineering would be easy, but the mental exhaustion of being one of the very few women isn't something you were prepared for. You feel like you can't bring all the parts of yourself to work. You've struggled to find peers and mentors who get you. You struggle to get useful direction or feedback on the non-technical things you need to advance. You feel frustrated and unsupported at work. You wonder what is wrong with you, because no matter what you've tried, you just can't seem to get ahead.


Did you know that 40% of women in STEM are usually or often the ONLY WOMAN in the room?

Did you know that 61% of women engineers report that they have to prove themselves repeatedly to get the same level of respect and recognition as their colleagues?

Did you know that female engineers, on average, make 10% less than male engineers?


...And it doesn't have to be this way.
When I found myself frustrated with my career progression and searched for resources to help me get unstuck, I didn't find any. Instead, I found generic advice for women in male-dominated industries. They told me to "be more confident", "lean in", and "ask for what you want". They indicated that organizations need to change their cultures to be more inclusive (which I fully support!).
This advice didn't help me. As a woman who was often the only one on her engineering teams, I couldn't find anything that would help me in that moment at work when someone took credit for my ideas, assigned me a non-technical task while my male colleagues got to do the technical stuff, or interrupted me during a meeting.

There wasn't anyone to teach me how to negotiate a promotion or a raise. 

There was no one to help me figure out where I wanted to go next in my career - or even what my career options might be - other than just getting the next task or next project complete.

There was no one to tell me that I wasn't imagining that I was being treated differently than my male colleagues. 

I often thought it was just me. I thought I was doing something wrong.

That's one of the reasons I wrote She Engineers, an best-selling book to help female engineers navigate their careers. I wanted to share what I had learned the hard way so you don't have to struggle as much I did. 

Readers asked if there was a way to be personally guided through the major lessons in the book. In response, the Fearless Masterclass was born!


 “I felt unappreciated. Primarily I lacked confidence. Being in this group….it makes you feel okay, this is happening to other people…the stuff on leadership and dealing with all these unconscious bias things….I have a colleague I’ve been butting heads with for years. Using what I learned, I got him to listen and take my recommendation, which has never happened before.“ 

Civil Engineer

“I was at a crossroad in determining whether I want to stay in a technical role or in a management role. I was also really struggling to find a mentor…I was living in a state of panic and feeling pressure to make a decision. And the course really made me relax, stop and take it step by step….It made me look at the big picture.” 

Electrical Engineer

“I was just in a really bad work situation when I entered the pilot, and I think my biggest thing was I actually didn’t know if I wanted to be an engineer anymore...I was at a very big crossroads in my life. I just dealt with a lot of like family stuff too and then work was imploding at the same time. So I needed that clarity….I made the decision to change jobs and stay in engineering.”

Level Up Your Engineering Career

Get noticed, gain respect, and start living up to your potential
In 2003, I entered the workforce. Fresh out of a highly ranked engineering program, and with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in hand, I moved halfway across the country to begin my engineering career.

My first day on the job, I quickly noticed that I was one of only two female engineers in the engineering department (we both started the same month), but I didn’t think much of it. My schooling had seemed entirely gender-neutral. My interests in math and science had been encouraged from a young age, and I had not really thought about the fact that men significantly outnumbered women in all my college engineering classes.

I have always enjoyed baking and sharing my baking with others. Someone having a bad day? Bring them some cookies. Someone having a celebration? Bake a cake. My favorite thing to make was anything involving chocolate. Brownies, chocolate chip cookies, mint chocolate chip cheesecake, you name it. My mouth is watering just thinking about making one of these.

So there I was, in my first weeks in my first full-time engineering position, and I brought in some homemade brownies to share at work. The brownies were soft and fudgy, with swirls of caramel that caused them to practically melt in your mouth.

One of the senior engineers in the department tasted one of my brownies, and commented, “This is why we need women in the department.” Yet, it wasn’t at all unusual for the men to bring in baked goods (in fact we took turns bringing in a treat once a week), and the only comment would be a thank-you.  

That was my first of many experiences with gender bias.

At first, I thought that I must be too sensitive and needed to work harder to fit in. I made a focused effort to “fit in” with the guys. I started paying more attention to sports teams. I tried my hand at golf. I developed a thicker skin and laughed off any sexist remarks.

I thought that acting more like the men, working harder, doing what everyone else was doing, and making sure I knew all the correct technical answers were the requirements for engineering success. I thought that if I could simply ignore the fact that I am a female engineer, I'd be treated equally.

Yet, over time I felt stuck in my career and exhausted with trying to keep up and trying to act like someone I was not. 

Working harder wasn't working for me.

I suspected that some of my frustrations were related to gender bias, but didn't know what to do. I didn't want to call attention to the unfairness because I was sure doing that would only make it worse. I felt alone and isolated.

On the outside, I was balancing everything well - meeting the deadlines by working until the wee hours of the morning and gaining praise from my boss. But on the inside? I was exhausted. I wanted to support my growing young family, but I also wanted to be able to see my family instead of working crazy hours. On the outside I appeared "successful", but on the inside I felt like a failure.
Not sure how to move my career forward, I did what I have always done when stuck – I did research. I embarked on a multi-year journey of reading, talking to other female engineers, learning from other industries, looking for data-backed research, and trial-by-error of the techniques I uncovered.

In the process, I found many of the keys to success as a woman in engineering. 

The keys that neutralize gender bias, silence critics (including your own inner doubter), accelerate your earning potential, and allow you to have a life outside of work. These are things that you can use in the exact moment you need them most.

You don't have to act like the men. You don't have to wait for someone else to change your work culture. You don't have to continually job hop in order to gain more respect, a raise, or a promotion.

And while you do need to work hard to be successful in any field, you don't need to be exhausted. You don't need to settle for being less than you are to have the career of your dreams.   


What if you got to spend more of your day doing exactly what you are best at?

What if your ideas were respected and you were recognized for your abilities?

What if you were able to successfully negotiate a promotion, raise, a flexible schedule, or more vacation time?

Who would you spend more time with if you didn't work all that overtime?

Fearless Female Engineers Masterclass 
This 5-week self-guided program teaches you the tools you need to take charge of your career, be heard, and gain respect, creating endless opportunities for your engineering career. 

Short training videos,  implementation challenges, live group coaching, and peer support will get you the results you need quickly. For a week-by-week breakdown of topics, click HERE.
Live Group Coaching Calls
Each week, join our live group calls (via Zoom), where we'll walk you through that week's lesson, share bonus tips, and talk about any roadblocks in the way of your success. Virtual breakout groups during these calls will help you implement the strategies learned so you can immediately apply them at work. All calls are recorded and replays are posted to our members-only site.
1-on-1 Coaching Support
We understand that each woman's career needs are unique. That's why our program includes unlimited email support, one 60 minute Strategy call after completion of Module 2, and one 45 minute Momentum call to be scheduled at your convenience within one year of enrollment. 
Private Virtual Community Support 
Peer and mentor support systems are critically important. There is mounting evidence that women in engineering with peer support groups and women mentors are more likely to stay in engineering and have more success in the field (the same correlation has NOT been found for women with male support). That's why you get lifetime access to our private Facebook community for peer support and accountability. You aren't alone anymore!
A-Z Career Plan Review 
The A-Z review started as an early-enrollee bonus for our pilot program. It was so popular and helpful to our students that we've decide to include it permanently! 

We'll review your career vision and implementation plan you create as part of the Masterclass. You'll get customized insights so you are set up for continued success long after the Masterclass is complete!
Resume and Cover Letter Review 
Sometimes getting clear on what you want in your career means it's time to look for a new job. While most programs charge extra for this service, it's included in ours! Submit your resume and cover letters for complementary review for up to one year after enrolling in the Masterclass! 
Support Beyond the Masterclass: Fearless Graduate Program
After completion of the Masterclass, you are automatically upgraded (for no additional cost) to our Graduate program for one full year, with monthly live group coaching calls to keep your momentum going. Each month, you'll have a chance to learn something new, discuss current topics, and stay connected with all graduates of the Fearless program.

1. When does Fearless meet and what topics are covered in each session?
Fearless meets online for 5 weeks on Tuesdays from noon-1pm E.S.T. and all sessions are recorded so you can watch them at your convenience if you can't make them live. Live topics each week parallel the self-guided course materials. 

Each live session includes approximately 20 minutes teaching of main concepts on that week's topic (with a focus on potential stumbling points), followed by live implementation exercises and/or open discussion. The curriculum is as follows:
  • Module 1, Vision: Your Dream Career Vision and Implementation Plan
  • ​Module 2, Strategy: Skills and Strategies for Vision Implementation
  • ​ Module 3, Connect: Finding Allies to Make Your Vision Reality
  • ​​Module 4, Lead: What to do about Bias, Double Standards, and other Challenges on Your Dream Career Journey
  • ​​Module 5, Leverage: Getting Buy-In for your Vision at Work
2. What if I can't make it to the online sessions?
Each session is recorded and posted in the members-only area. You can watch or re-watch the sessions at your convenience and have lifetime access to your cohorts' recordings. If you have a particular question about a session you missed, you can email your instructor (me!) at any time.
3. How long do I have access to this program? 
You have lifetime access to the self-guided modules of the Masterclass, including periodic future updates we may make to the modules. Access also included the weekly recordings of the live group coaching calls. You also have lifetime access to the private Facebook group.

The 1 on 1 coaching support, resume and cover letter reviews, and Fearless Graduate program access expire one year from date of enrollment. 
4. Can I enroll later? When is the next time you will offer Fearless? 
The level of customized support you receive in this program is unparallelled in the industry at this price point, which is usually only accessible via thousands of dollars spent on executive coaching or women's leadership programs. For that reason, Fearless is only open for enrollment at certain times of the year. The last time it was open for enrollment was June 2019. While we expect to open it again sometime in 2020, this is not guaranteed. 

It is likely future offerings will be modified from what is currently shown on this page, including the investment required and services. Several pilot students, for example, told us in their feedback that our price is much lower than expected for the services provided (we strive to over-deliver!).

Additionally, as the program scales, we expect future offerings will have less direct access to me. For this session, all training and coaching (including the 1 on 1 coaching) are led by me (Stephanie). Future training sessions may be led by another member of my team. 
5. How do I know this program will work for me? Do you have a guarantee? 
This program is based on all the strategies, skills, and tools I have learned, many of which I documented in She Engineers. I've often been the only woman on my engineering teams, and have never been "the boss" when I worked as a design and project management engineer. I have 15 years experience working in the trenches of engineering, and three small children to boot. The strategies you'll learn in this program will work even if you've had trouble getting support where you work in the past. They are effective even if you are just starting out in your first job or are in any position where you don't have a lot of authority (yet). They are strategies I used to course-correct my own career, including getting a promotion, earning various achievements, and ultimately starting my own company. They will work for you if you follow our step-by-step process in the program, complete the exercises, and either attend or watch the live sessions. 

Please don't take my word for it...have a look at the testimonials on this page from our pilot students!

Additionally, we offer a generous 30-day money back guarantee, which enables you to complete 4/5's of the program and access all our resources, including the 1 on 1 coaching, within the guarantee period. We want you to be completely satisfied, so if you put in the work and don't see your career transform, we are happy to give you a refund.

Of note is that this program only works if you do. This program is NOT for you if you are looking for a magic bullet that will solve all your career problems but are not willing to put in the work to complete this program. 

Please note that we are engineers, and as such do not offer legal advice or mental health counseling as part of this program. If you have special concerns, for example you suspect you are dealing with harrassment in the workplace or have mental health challenges, please click HERE to set up a no-obligation call, or email to discuss your specific needs prior to enrolling so we can determine together if the program is a good fit for you.
