Introducing “The Heart of Science: Engineering Fine Print” a new book by Jayshree Seth -

Auto Draft -The Society of Women Engineers published Jayshree Seth’s second book, “The Heart of Science: Engineering Fine Print”, today on International Women’s Day. This book follows the success of Jayshree’s first collaboration with SWE when she wrote “The Heart of Science: Engineering Footprints, Fingerprints, & Imprints” in 2020. 

“What is at the heart of my second book is an attempt to go deeper on the topic of transitions to thrive and survive amidst change, reflections to provide perspective, and insights into actions we can take,” said Jayshree Seth. “The last two years have made me realize that real growth, true leadership, and self-actualization comes from getting in touch with our feelings and dissecting them, understanding our identities and their evolution, tapping into our needs at a very innate human level, and integrating these new learnings with our lived experiences, to work through tough transitions, deep reflections, and meaningful actions.”

Taking the next step from points to ponder that were throughout the first book, Jayshree explores the FINE print with each essay throughout this book – our “Feelings, Identities, Needs, and Experiences” that evolved during the pandemic across many fronts including science and technology.

All proceeds of this book go to the Jayshree Seth Scholarship for Women of Color in STEM, administered by the Society of Women Engineers. The scholarship is aimed at helping underrepresented minorities advance in STEM education and professional related to engineering and technology.
