Dr. Lesley Shannon, WWEST Chair
As the chair for WWEST, an academic woman in STEM, and a mother, I #ChoosetoChallenge gender bias and inequality. At WWEST, we are working hard to establish a diverse and engaged community of individuals that respect each other and value collaborative and sustainable solutions, resulting in scientific and engineering developments that better humanity and our world. The work we do challenges the status quo and the established landscape of academia, industry, and community. We question those who say the marginalized are not welcome at the table. All of us at WWEST #ChoosetoChallenge because we want a world where everybody is on a level playing field.
