WEST Sponsorship

Why Sponsor?

Sponsorship is a tremendous means for outreach to the WEST community.
WEST has an email list of over 5,000 contacts. Over 85% of attendees to WEST events have graduate degrees, and the majority are important decision makers in the science and technology industry. The WEST community and members are always eager to learn about other individuals, organizations, and opportunities.

The support of women in science and technology is essential — for men as well as women — to further their work, the organizations they work within, economic growth of our region and the quality of life for those within and far beyond our area. WEST sponsorship contributes to this reach and impact, and demonstrates your organizations commitment to these issues.
