Hi Everyone! My name is Jocelyn Sexton, and I am the chair of the Women in STEM Book Club in Austin. This is our first attempt at a Virtual Book Club meeting... so we'll see how this goes! :-)
We have plans to discuss two books:
I'm happy to start the discussion about Hidden Figures (the book I read), and then Rachelle McWright will chime in on Pivot.
Rachelle McWright: Business Development Manager, Dynamic Simulation: U.S. Gulf Coast

In reply to Katie Smith:
Admittedly, I'm only 2/3 into Pivot myself. I read it from the viewpoint of a discussion leader, but am eager to go back and apply some of the exercises in my own life. Here are the 4 "Steps" of a Pivot, Im curious if anyone has engaged in the exercises she recommends and would share feedback?
4 Key steps of the Pivot Method:
Plant: Understand what skills and experiences you can leverage from your past to anchor your next career move.
Scan: Explore a wide range of opportunities and options available to you, and the skills you’ll need in order to pursue them.
Pilot: Experiment in one or a few ways to test whether you’re ready to take advantage of a new opportunity or move in a new direction (whether within your current role, or outside of it).
Launch: Start moving into what’s next for you and your career.
On page 16, I marked this sentence which I love AND fear. jocelyn sexton nailed it, it's scary from beginning to end, "Release the illusion of security within a fixed future and allow life to suprise you instead. The only move that matters is your next one."
