Submit Your Outreach Activities!

Posted on

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!

Posted on

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!”

Visit the conference website to register with Early Bird pricing and to book your accommodations through the SWE hotel block!
