Our Diverse Community: Although WEST’s mission is that of a learning community to advance women leaders in the enterprise of science and technology, we welcome the participation of anyone who would find value from our learning community. We recognize and value the role a diverse and inclusive membership has in the development of leadership skills among our members. Differences in gender, age, race, ethnic heritage, religion, appearance, sexual orientation, or any number of other distinguishing factors provide experiences, viewpoints, and ideas that can strengthen and enrich our discussion.
