Host: Daniel Lattimore Guest: Joanie Connell
Description: Special guest host Dr. Daniel Lattimore interviews Dr. Joanie Connell about her book, Consulting to Technical Leaders, Teams, and Organizations: Building Leadership in STEM Environments. Daniel asks probing questions to get Joanie to tell stories about her past that she has never shared before. Joanie talks about her experience working as an electrical engineer and how she became interested in studying psychology to help technical people communicate better with each other. She also describes some of the challenges she faced personally as one of the 5% of women engineers. Joanie points to parts of the book that make suggestions for increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM and talks more broadly about how the STEM industries are different from other industries. Daniel also sprinkles in his comedic talent to provide an entertaining episode.
