The Silicon Valley Business Journal has named Dr. Peyton Greenside, Chief Scientific Officer and Co-Founder of BigHat Biosciences, as one of 2021’s Women of Influence in Silicon Valley. The entire list was unveiled in the June 18, 2021, issue of the Business Journal. Peyton Greenside will also be celebrated during a special SVBJ virtual event on June 30.
For more than a decade, the Silicon Valley Business Journal has been celebrating the accomplishments and impact that women have had on business and the community throughout the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area as well the Monterey Bay region. The outstanding women chosen to be honored each year represent a cross-section of entities in the region, including public corporations, private companies, nonprofits and local governments.
“This year’s Women of Influence class is the most diverse we’ve ever had, which is a reflection both of the dynamic diversity in Silicon Valley as well as the rise of women from all backgrounds into greater positions of leadership,” said J. Jennings Moss, SVBJ’s editor-in-chief and general manager. “This is truly an impressive, inspiring and, yes, influential group of professionals.”
“I’m honored to receive this award and join the company of many incredible women in Silicon Valley. I'm also delighted that our work at BigHat is recognized by SVBJ as we continue to make progress in developing new generations of safer and more effective treatments for patients suffering from today’s most challenging diseases."
