Networking at WE17!

Posted on

WE17 is fast approaching – and we can’t wait! As WE17 has so much going on, utilize the Conference Planner  to help you view information on Housing, Exhibitors, Events, and Speakers.

Since we’re just a few weeks out, it’s time to talk about one of the most important aspects of WE17 – Networking! From meeting potential future employers, making new friends, or just connecting with one of the original members from SWE (they have the BEST stories), networking is key to a fulfilling experience.

Everyone has those moments of feeling awkward or uncomfortable when networking at an event of this size, so use the webinars linked below to help you prepare!

Submit Your Outreach Activities!

The Society Outreach Committee has pulled together a simple tool to track outreach activities.  The request that we have is that as part of your outreach event close-out, you take 5 minutes and fill out this Survey Monkey with 10 simple questions.  Why are we doing this?  To help SWE understand how we are impacting the future of students in STEM.  We do a lot of great outreach work, let’s take credit for it.  Any questions, contact Andrea Clewley.

WE17 Registration is Open!

From the  WE17 Website:

“As an engineer—or aspiring engineer—you likely look at engineering as more than a way to earn a living. You see it as a WAY of living. A mindset that assesses life from an inquisitive, problem-solving, point of view—a mind that’s always engineering.

Attend WE17—the world’s largest conference and career fair for women in engineering and technology—to connect with thousands who share your engineering outlook. Together, you’ll learn, find new jobs or internships and be inspired. You’ll connect with new friends and mentors, or re-connect with colleagues and classmates you’ve grown with.

We promise it’ll be three unforgettable days for all of us who are always connecting and always engineering!”
