Stephanie Slocum Bio

Stephanie Slocum knows what it’s like to have a corporate career that looks amazing on paper but makes you feel trapped. After 15 years working as an engineer, she started her business as a side project by self-publishing the bestselling book She Engineers: Outsmart Bias, Unlock Your Potential, and Live the Engineering Career of your Dreams. She wrote the book while working 50+ hour weeks as an employee and with three small children at home.

Six months after publishing her book she quit her corporate job to teach other frustrated professional women the people + business skills they need to have the impact they want on world, which for a growing number of women means starting their own businesses. Her step-by-step systems-based approach to starting a side business (without quitting your day job!) gets women who have no time results quickly, so they too can launch their impact-driven businesses without the financial downside of the traditional entrepreneurship path.

Stephanie is a keynote and women’s empowerment speaker, mom of three girls, proud introvert, and winner of the 2020 Connected World Women in Technology Award. Stephanie has a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in architectural engineering.
