Earlier this month, I attended the Nebraska Women in STEM conference in Omaha, and it was my first time experiencing it. I wanted to share a few thoughts with others regarding the conference. First, seeing so many women in one place was powerful; the second observation I had was that whether it was intentional or not, the theme of authentic self and bringing your true self to all parts of your life, from personal to professional, was encouraged by speakers throughout the day.
