Posted by WEST Board Member on Jun 4, 2018 11:17:35 AM

Every year WEST is proud to organize our special award evening. This will be our 9th annual event. Four women leaders in STEM who have been nominated by their peers as successful, generous role models were selected as awardees. They in turn have chosen four “up and comers” who they believe are outstanding future leaders. We all have much to learn from this impressive group as they tell us their success stories and share their tips for the advancement of women in STEM whatever the stage of your career.

Meet some “Wonder Women” and “Super Men” at the WEST 10th Annual Giving Back Awards!
 
For most of us, working all day and managing to get dinner on the table is heroic. For others, like Sara Nochur, working all day is a prelude to fundraising that enables young children in rural India to stay in school by providing them with homes, food, and shelter. Or for Elizabeth O’Day, it’s starting a non-profit organization that recycles electronics and uses the resale profits to build computer centers in orphanages around the world. If these sound like incredible feats, it’s because they are. And yet amazing people working in our local STEM community are doing those extraordinary things, and much more.
