About WE Local Conferences

WE Local conferences take Society of Women Engineers’ educational and professional development concepts and make them hyperlocal by engaging with SWE members right in their backyard. Conferences bring together participants in all stages of their collegiate and professional journeys to learn, energize/re-energize and connect through high-quality professional development workshops, career fairs, networking opportunities, inspirational speakers (like yourself!) and outreach activities.

Keynote Criteria

WE Local seeks Keynote Speakers from within and outside of the STEM community. We are looking for Keynote Speakers to share thought-provoking and motivational content that draws from personal experience. Based on conference surveys, attendees go to WE Local for:

  • Inspiration/motivation
  • Education
  • Networking

The most successful Keynote presentations are those that are authentic and engage with the audience. For an example of a successful and highly rated Keynote presentation, watch Sonia Rocha-Sanchez's Keynote Speech at WE Local Milwaukee last March.
