The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) has dozens of podcasts to inform you and engage your mind as you commute to work, wait at the airport, get some exercise, do housework, or just relax at home. We post them in our Advance Learning Center and on this blog, All Together. You’ll find them on SoundCloud and iTunes.
We feature entertaining subjects and fascinating people. One of our most popular podcasts is about a comic book writer who wrote SWE’s first comic book: Constance & Nano’s Engineering Adventure #1. Another one features the founder and drummer of an all-female rock band, The Mrs, which is performing at SWE’s Annual Conference, WE17, in Austin, TX. SWE also has podcast series such as Women Executives in Engineering and Men as Diversity Partners.
