Partner Mary Jane Weaver Attends White House Ceremony Honoring Immigrant Innovators
June 3, 2013
WSM Partner Mary Jane Weaver traveled to Washington, D.C. last week as a proud attendee of the White House's Champions of Change awards ceremony, which was held May 29 to honor immigrant innovators. We all are awestruck at the accomplishments of the 11 awardees, who include several Bay Area entrepreneurs and inventors: http://www.whitehouse.gov/champions
They remind us of the American Dream and what is at stake if we do not pass comprehensive immigration reform in 2013. Key foreign-born talents at all levels must feel both welcomed and encouraged to remain in the United States and continue doing what they do best: contribute to our country's innovation and prosperity. Let's keep our Senators accountable as the immigration bill reaches the Senate floor next week.
