Published On: March 2018

From March 14-15, 2018, over 160 SWE members and partners gathered in Washington, DC to advocate for a workforce that is diverse and inclusive of women engineers. After engaging in a training and issue briefing, engineers and partners in diversity met with offices of over 35 U.S. Senators and nearly 75 U.S. Members of Congress.

SWE Members who were unable to be present in DC remotely participated by sending letters and emails to their federally elected officials to support SWE’s advocacy in DC. In using the #SWEAdvocacy hashtag on Twitter SWE members garnered over 40,000 impressions in a 24 hour period.
