Women in Tech Awards Luncheon
For some inexplicable reason, there’s been a bias against women in the STEM fields, which has manifested itself in fewer opportunities, salaries, prizes, and recognition for women scientists. With Westchester emerging as a significant biotech and health tech hub, the Westchester County Association (WCA) wants to reverse that trend. Last year, the WCA, Westchester’s leading business organization, inaugurated the Women in Tech Awards Luncheon to honor pioneering women scientists who work here.
If the companies founded by MIT graduates formed an independent nation, their revenues would propel that nation to the 17th-largest economy in the world, according to a Kauffman Foundation study. But MIT alumni, drawn from all over the world, remain heavily in Massachusetts, where they provide significant economic benefit to their local and regional economies. Could bringing an engineering school to Westchester have similar positive results?
Join us for our third quarter networking event with over 200 members of the regional business community, non profit leaders, and government officials. Enjoy delicious food from renowned caterer, Caperberry Events, while roaming around C.V. Mansion, a turn-of-the-century Victorian home with beautiful outdoor gardens.

Residential development is booming in Westchester, but there’s nary a two-car garage or cul-de-sac in sight. Real estate companies are developing, constructing, and opening apartment buildings in the county at an unprecedented rate, according to informed sources. Just this week, news broke that Valhalla-based developer Martin Ginsburg wants to build a 55-unit luxury apartment building at 1177 Warburton Avenue in Yonkers, just one block north of a 330-unit Ginsburg Development Companies apartment building now under construction. Lighthouse Enterprises, whose three luxury rental buildings in White Plains are nearly fully leased, broke ground this spring on a 50-unit apartment building in Port Chester. Harrison, New Rochelle, Bronxville, Tarrytown, and Dobbs Ferry also have apartment projects in the works.
