WegoWise CEO Recognized as a Woman to Watch in Science and Technology
Recently the Boston Business Journal recognized our CEO Laila Partridge as a Woman to Watch in Science and Technology, something we at WegoWise have known for quite some time!
The award recognizes New England’s female technology and business leaders who are driving both new and established companies, propelling the Massachusetts’ innovation economy, and serving as role models. The awards breakfast was packed with fellow attendees, including a proud table of WegoWise women, who braved a cold and snowy Boston morning to honor ten amazing innovators and trailblazers.
Honorees spoke to a wide range of experiences and wisdom, ranging from their greatest accomplishments and challenges to how mentors have shaped them along the way. In her remarks, Laila spoke on how to increase the number of women in science and technology.
"At every important step in my career, from my first job to my current role, while I was trying to figure out my next step, a critical introduction came from a woman. What I am drawing attention to is the women’s professional network which in an overwhelming male work environment is remarkably powerful.” She concluded by challenging attendees to make a conscious effort to promote talented young women and provide them with a network.
