Hear from Westchester's Top Female Innovators on November 19
Women are half the population, but only hold a small fraction of the top jobs in tech and science. In Westchester County, it's different. The glass ceiling has been shattered and science and technology has been advanced significantly by this year's honorees at the Westchester County Association's first-ever "Women in Tech" Awards Luncheon, hosted by Manoush Zomorodi, host of "New Tech City" on 93.9 WNYC New York Public Radio.
Zomorodi will deliver the luncheon keynote speech and present the awards to our honorees, a distinguished group of women pioneering some of the world’s most
importance science. The honorees are responsible for engineering the
CDC’s flu vaccine; researching new breast cancer treatments; discovering
breakthroughs in cerebral palsy therapies; tackling drug-resistant
viruses; and advancing DNA sequencing.
The honorees are:
Doris Bucher, Ph.D., associate professor of Microbiology and Immunology, New York Medical College
Chau Dang, M.D., chief, West Harrison Medical Oncology Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Kathleen Friel, Ph.D., director, Clinical Laboratory for Early Brain Injury Recovery, Burke-Cornell Medical Research Institute
Julia P. Gregory, chief executive officer, ContraFect
Soo Young Yang, Ph.D., founder, Chairman, Histogenetics.
The event takes place on Wednesday, November 19, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., at the Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown. Tickets are $110 for WCA members; and $130 for future members. The event is sponsored by Gold Sponsor, Sterling National Bank, and Silver Sponsor, Tompkins Mahopac Bank.
