SWE is being considered for two professional development presentation opportunities at The South by Southwest® Conference and Festival.

Why Female Leaders Are Leaving Your Company

Getting More Girls Interested in Tech

Returnships Increase Workplace Diversity

Presentation opportunities like these are so important to the Society’s objective to promote the value of diversity and remain a catalyst for change for women in engineering and technology.

Community votes are 30% of the final decision, with input of the SXSW Staff (30%) and Advisory Board (40%). South by Southwest says this process helps ensure that less well-known voices have as much of a chance as being selected to speak at SXSW as individuals with large online followings..

We thank you for your support!!
