Swe’s #givingtuesday Campaign Features Lisa Rimpf And Life Membership

About #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday was November 28, 2017. Thanks to a generous anonymous matching donation, SWE’s Board of Directors and Leadership, and SWE’s members and donors, we raised $13,190 yesterday! This exceeded our goal of $10,000 and is, by far, our most successful #GivingTuesday to date!

About the SWE Life Membership

About Lisa Rimpf

Lisa Rimpf is a SWE Life Member and the Director of Operational Excellence at Babcock & Wilcox. At SWE, Rimpf currently serves on the Board of Directors as the Director of Regions, a position she has held since 2016. Prior to this position, Lisa was the Deputy Director of Regions, Region G Governor, and the Counselor for the SWE University of Akron Section. This fall, Lisa was able to share with us some of her reasons for giving back to SWE and how she sees the organization having an impact. Thank you, Lisa, for your leadership and generosity to SWE’s mission!


SWE: Why do you donate to SWE?

Lisa: I love donating to SWE to help our mission. In addition to being a SWE Life Member, I make an effort to give back through the Board of Directors Challenge. This year, myself and several other board members designated a portion of our giving towards the SWE #GivingTuesday campaign. Funds collected through these avenues ensure that SWE is able to be flexible and innovative in pursuing its mission.

SWE: How does SWE make an impact?

Lisa: For me, SWE makes an impact by fostering workplaces that are diverse and inclusive to help meet the needs of a global marketplace that needs skilled engineers. It has been to tremendous to see the impact SWE has, both as a Board Member, and as someone who has been very involved with SWE in my local community.
