    Unleashing My Superpowers: How to navigate and succeed in a male-dominated mining work environment (STEM) by Dr. Patience Mpofu is a well-written book that’s a personal memoir of the author as she recounts her experiences in the male-dominated mining industry. There is so much to glean from this book and it’s so impactful for women as they navigate careers. With wisdom, personal experience, and the drive to succeed, the author shares her challenges, successes, and more as she recounts her career and life. There are plenty of step by steps exercises, solid advice, and inspiring leadership stories to bolster the impactful premise. Highly recommended.

    This is a timely text from not only, a woman in STEM, not just a woman of colour as well, but also a black woman. So often in this century we’ve been asked how to get girls and women into STEM. A more interesting question is once they get there, how are women in STEM doing it. This book answers that in such a unique way. If you’re going to pick up a read from from an accomplished BLACK and AFRICAN woman, and get a taste of black-girl-magic, let it be from Dr Mpofu.

    Without starting a gender-equality conflict, Unleashing your superpowers describes an undeniable situation; that despite our modernity, and all the advancements humankind has achieved, women are still considered unfit for specific jobs, activities, and roles. The book provides the tools to overcome this reality and hopefully break the cycle. With inspiring prose and a kind voice, the author leads us through a path that promises success and the correct use of our abilities and talents as women.
