WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY —With Westchester emerging as a biotech and health tech hub, the Westchester County Association is working to encourage women to enter STEM careers. Historically, fewer women than men have chosen careers in STEM fields. The good news is that attitudes are changing, WCA officials said.
Three years ago, the WCA inaugurated the Women in Tech Awards Luncheon to honor the pioneering women in STEM fields who work locally. The Fourth Annual Women in Tech Awards Luncheon June 22 will honor four more outstanding women.
