The Society of Women Engineers is pleased to announce its second conference for women in India. WE India, which is now known as WE Local Pune, is 22-24 March, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Pune, India. SWE invites you to join us for a life-changing, two-day experience that will feature professional development, networking and career opportunities for women in engineering and technology.
Last April, 360 women gathered at the Westin Pune Koregaon Park for SWE’s inaugural conference in India. Women from diverse backgrounds were empowered during sessions, networking with other professionals and hearing from the keynote speaker Abha Banerjee, the “Oprah of India.”
Hear from Abha Banerjee about how she overcame opposition in her life, her strategies for success and more.

In true SWE manner, at WE India 2016, there was a celebration of achievements to highlight the great work the SWE Pune Affiliate and our SWE ambassadors are doing as well as our sponsors in the area who support our mission.
One of our biggest markets is India. The number of women graduating with engineering degrees in India is truly amazing! And now with a conference such as WE India, we hope to be able to support women who pursue and advance their careers as engineers and leaders in India by providing opportunities to meet peers, network with mentors, share work/life expertise, learn and grow, and build leadership skills.
