WE16 by the Numbers

Women in engineering and technology go to WE16, SWE’s annual conference, to make friends at all stages of their lives and careers. Life's variable, SWE's your constant.

"Everyone in SWE is very friendly. I’ve created friendships and mentorships that will last a lifetime in SWE," says Rachel Sheppard, SWE member.

"I’ve met people from around the world, and anywhere I go, I have a friend," says Jessica Rannow, FY17 SWE President.

 

We expect to have a record number of attendees at this year’s conference, more than 10,000, so don’t miss it. Register now.

Hundreds of professional development sessions, networking events, and the WE16 Career Fair will provide you with endless ways to meet fellow women engineers, mentors, potential employers, or graduate school recruiters.

Last year we even wrote a song about it!  Listen below!
