This event was conceived by Ilene Fisher from WEST (Women Entrepreneurs in Science and Technology), who worked closely with Stacy Wong from Google Cambridge, as well as Googlers Sonie Guseh, Sonia Chung and Chelsea Pollen to plan the evening. Mari Anne Shaw, WEST board member, served as the fabulous MC.
I am just writing to thank you very much for sponsoring this event and allowing the girls to meet such a great array of professional women. Elena shared her notes on each woman and gained much insight into the pathways of successful women.
I am a parent of a 7th grader who currently participating at Science Club for Girls. I would like to say thank you to all the incredible women who participated and took time to meet with the girls and share their career path. I know it is not possible to reach everyone at once but one step at a time, a difference in someone’s life can be made.
Can’t agree more. THANK YOU!!
