2021-2022 Annual Theme: Reflect, Reimagine, and Emerge Stronger

WEST’s annual theme of “Reflect, Reimagine, and Emerge Stronger” represents
we have gained and have lost over the past year. As we enter another year
of challenges and opportunities, our goal is to connect a network of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals by supporting their personal growth and career development through virtual networking events and engaging workshops and discussions. For the 21st year in a row, WEST is here to empower women in the workplace to reflect on their achievements, reimagine their goals, and emerge as leaders.  


What Is Your Leadership Style?
July 26, 2022 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM EST 

While many of us intellectually recognize that there are different leadership styles in the workplace, in times of stress or uncertainty, we risk making emotionally-based assumptions about others’ motivations, behaviors and styles that undermine our relationships and productivity. In this interactive session, we’ll explore the Deloitte Business Chemistry Profiles model to better understand your leadership style as well as the styles of those around you. You will also learn how to best engage with different styles to maximize your relationships and overall business outcomes.

Location: Zoom
Cost: Members: $0; Non-Members: $10



Mentoring Program
September 8 - December 8, 2022 6:00-8:00 PM EST 

The program mission is to help mentees achieve a personal or career goal by using small mentoring groups (pods) to obtain diverse perspectives that will provide an enriching experience for mentees and enable execution on goals through focused actions. During the application process, mentees will rate their interest in topics related to transitions and that will be use for matching their core pod. Mentees will also have the opportunity to explore the other topics offered and/or mentors for their flex pod time each session. Applications are due by August 15th.


CostMembers: $100
