SWE member and pageant contestant Michelle Lin urges all engineers and future engineers to remember: “You are not just your major, and you deserve to pursue all your passions in equal capacity.”
Has SWE become more inclusive over the years? Tune in for this Diverse podcast with two past Hispanic SWE presidents—Anna Salguero and Alma Martinez Fallon—hosted by Bianca McCartt, co-lead of the SWE Latinos Affinity Group. Happy Hispanic Heritage Month, SWEsters!
SWE has evolved since its founding in 1950. So, too, have pageants. We want to be at the forefront of showing all that women have to offer, so when SWE Member Michelle Lin reached out to us about sponsoring her in a pageant, we were all ears.
SWE is a place for women of all backgrounds to come together and share unique perspectives to advance both themselves and the field of engineering.
SWE’s research efforts are committed to identifying the gaps in existing research and awareness around the barriers women, especially those from racial/ethnic or identities underrepresented in STEM, face in pursuing, persisting, and succeeding in the field of engineering and technology.
In observance of Hispanic Heritage Month which takes place from September 15th to October 15th, SWE will be highlighting Hispanic and Latino engineers and technologists via history ‘lessons’, personal blog posts, and a podcast. HAPPY HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH, SWESTERS!
