WELCOME TO THE BAY AREA WOMEN'S EXECUTIVE SHADOW PROGRAM (WESP)!
The Women's Executive Shadow Program (WESP) is an active shadowing experience where high-potential women partner with an executive to experience a day in their life, gain cross-functional exposure to the business, and network with like-minded peers.
WESP is a volunteer-run program at Adobe. It started in 2012 with 5 shadow pairs in the bay area and grew to 113 pairs and 5 regions by 2017.
