About WEST

In 2015 a few Silicon Valley companies came up with the idea for a cross company mentorship program for women in tech, to help women navigate their careers while broadening their network. Although the feedback from participants was positive, there wasn't a scalable model for continuing the program at the time so it was shelved. However, in 2016, Heidi Williams still couldn't shake the idea that there was real value in mentorship for women, especially mid-career women who are leaving tech at twice the rate of men. While many programs are aimed at getting women into tech, WEST hopes to help retain and develop the women who are already here, helping them become our next leaders and role models.
