Friends of WEST

WEST recently launched a new annual membership option called Friends of WEST. This option provides an opportunity to support WEST at a significant level: $500. This level of sponsorship can cover the cost of a speaker or catering for a workshop, and allows WEST to maintain flexibility in events that we produce. In exchange for this level of support, Friends of WEST are welcome to all events for the year, receive an invite to an exclusive networking event with the WEST board, and their names are listed on the WEST website.

 

Current Friends of WEST include:

  • Ali Farquhar, Principal, GTL Coaching and Consulting
  • Chesley Chen, CEO, g.Root Biomedical
  • Danielle Lauzon, Partner, Goodwin Procter LLP
  • Rachel Meyers, Entrepreneur-In-Residence, Third Rock Ventures
  • Jackie Schumacher, Principal, DAS Consulting
  • Jo Viney, Co-Founder, President and CSO, Pandion Therapeutics
  • Laurence Reid, CEO, Decibel Therapeutics
  • Mariana Nacht, CSO, Cereius, Inc.
  • Sandra Glucksmann, President and CEO Cedilla Therapeutics
  • Trish Hurter, CEO, Lyndra Therapeutics

Why Join?

"I am a Friend of WEST because I've greatly enjoyed my involvement with WEST over the last several years.  I not only get to network with my colleagues, I have made new friends and hired key personnel whom I met at WEST events. It's a unique local community with warm, friendly and driven people in science and technology."  - Mariana

"I have been very fortunate in my career to have had a fabulous network of mentors, and I want to make sure that I afford the same opportunity to the next generation of female leaders. I have spent the past few years volunteering at a variety of WEST events - from workshops, to panel discussions, to signature award ceremonies. I am always humbled by the amazing array of talent, and nothing is more rewarding than seeing the increase in confidence and career progression of members who are part of our WEST community. I highly encourage others who are passionate about the cause to join us."  - Jo
