WEST is interested in offering an entrepreneurial series in the fall and we would like your feedback regarding your interests in this series. The entrepreneurial series is intended for those interested in starting a business and those interested in applying entrepreneurial thinking skills to their current or future job.
The WEST Board is very pleased to announce the affiliation of WEST and WITI (Women in Technology International) as both organizations have a very similar mission of developing women in the enterprise of Science and Technology.
WEST members will be able to attend the fine local programs and events provided by WITI at the WITI member rate (and vice versa). WEST members should email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discount code.
Both organizations are hopeful that through this new partnership we will jointly find ways to encourage more women to enter science and technology professions and also enable our members to advance their careers and reach their full potential.
WEST offers lunch and learn opportunities to groups interested in getting to know the WEST organization.
We would like to hear what events and workshop topics you are most interested in, what time frames and locations work best, and what issues distract you from and/or preoccupy you in terms of developing your STEM career.
