The theme for WE17 is Always Connecting … Always Engineering. You cannot attend a WE conference without forming connections, and we know that engineering is more than just a profession…it’s a mindset and outlook that defines who you are and how you think.
So, in anticipation of the largest conference for women engineers, we’re asking our members how they’re Always Connecting and Always Engineering in their lives.

"I come to SWE conferences because it always gives me a new perspective. It takes me to different cities in the United States so that I can experience their culture and environment, and most importantly, the workshops I find them extremely helpful in terms of personal development.
Every day we see problems that are going on in our life. That's when we use our engineering skills to create solutions and actually solve these problems. It's about constantly looking for solutions to improve the world.
I would recommend attending SWE conferences because you can really learn a lot from the workshops to improve your leadership skills and also know the trend of technology development that's going on in the world. Also, it's a great networking opportunity. You get to talk to tons of employers from different companies and meet a lot of people from different SWE sections and know how their chapter is running. It helps give you a new perspective and helps open up your mind."
