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.
