Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

SWE is an international engineering society for professional and collegiate members which promotes and encourages women in the engineering workplace. Being a part of SWE is a wonderful opportunity to develop professional skills, network with other female engineers and promote math and engineering education for younger girls in the community. Specifically, the mission of SWE is to “stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity” (Society of Women Engineers 2015).

SWE provides its collegiate members with wonderful leadership and networking opportunities. Leadership roles of various importance and time-commitments are available on a local level and on a societal level to develop skills that stand out in an interview and are coveted in the workplace. Networking is also developed through webinars, conferences, professional section events, and career fairs.
