BOSTON—Womble Bond Dickinson would like to congratulate Women in the Enterprise of Science & Technology (WEST) on its 20th anniversary. WEST is a leading not-for-profit organization that focuses on developing future women leaders in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.

Attorneys in Womble Bond Dickinson’s Boston office have a long history of involvement with WEST. For example, Caitlin MacDowell currently serves on the WEST Board of Directors, and Deborah Vernon, Ph.D. now serves on the WEST Board of Advisors after serving on the organization’s Board of Directors for five years. Attorneys from the Boston office are regular attendees at WEST events, including the organization’s annual Science & Technology Annual Networking Night.

“We all prosper when everyone has the opportunity to maximize their talents and potential. For example, the co-lead scientist on the groundbreaking Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is a woman—Dr. Ozlem Tureci. For 20 years, WEST has advanced opportunities for women in science and technology careers—and we are proud to support these efforts.”
