Book: The Confidence Code 

StemUp Book Club<br />

The STEM-UP Network Book Club is a space dedicated to exploring empowering women and building confidence through the lens of “The Confidence Code” and similar works. This book club is designed for individuals eager to enhance their self-assurance and unlock their full potential.



Our mission is to create a supportive community that encourages self-discovery and personal growth by delving into literature that addresses the complexities of confidence. “The Confidence Code” serves as our guide, but we also explore related works that inspire and empower individuals to embrace their strengths and navigate challenges with resilience.


Discussion Format:

Our discussions are open, honest, and focused on personal reflections. Members are encouraged to share their experiences, challenges, and triumphs in a supportive environment. Through dialogue, we aim to uncover practical tips and actionable takeaways that help each member on their journey to building and sustaining confidence.


Meeting Frequency:

We gather monthly to discuss the selected book of the cohort. Whether you’re a seasoned professional, a student navigating challenges, or someone simply seeking a confidence boost, you’ll find a warm and welcoming community ready to explore the transformative power of confidence.
