Our trade deficit has reached an eight-year low. The consequence for millions of working families is slowing wage growth, fewer job opportunities, increasing insecurity.

My toddler is the fiercest CEO I've ever pitched to. He can cut through the clutter faster than a well maintained chainsaw in the hands of a zombie apocalypse survivor. If I'm trying to cajole him into doing something, he doesn't want to hear a weak sales pitch.

Women in STEM and women in business have much to offer each other. The low prevalence of women in both fields indicate that something is amiss in our STEM and business environments. If we could figure out what we can do together, more women will remain in STEM and business and benefit each other.
