Thank you for your generosity!
November 27 was #GivingTuesday, and through the generosity and leadership of SWE Leaders and our Board of Directors, we raised $12,000. Donations are continuing to come in as well! Donations from SWE Leadership were critical to our ability to raise over our $10,000 goal!
Thank you to those of you who were able to make a donation and for those of you who were able to share on social media!
We appreciate you all as SWE Leaders and wish you the very best this holiday season!

With over 40,000 members, SWE is the world’s largest advocate and catalyst for change for women in the engineering profession. Check out some of our core programmatic activities below that highlight our work:
Advocacy: In the spring of each year, SWE convenes its members and partners for our annual non-partisan Congressional Outreach Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC around the theme of Diversity and Inclusion Fuels Innovation in STEM. This event is free for SWE members to attend and we provide training and guidance to engage with elected officials. We also provide on-going input to elected officials and federal agencies throughout the year. More here.
Annual Conference Registration Grants: This year during the WE18 registration process, over 850 generous individuals donated to raise funds for next year’s WE19 Registration Grant program, which will support collegiate and professional members attend WE19 in Anaheim, CA. Want to help more women attend WE19? Consider donating to the Annual Grant Registration program on Giving Tuesday! More here.
Scholarships: Within the United States, SWE is one of the largest providers of scholarships exclusively for women. Through our scholarship program, we gave out over $800,000 worth of scholarship-based funding directly to collegiate and graduate level female engineering students for the 2018/2019 academic year. More here.
K-12 Outreach: SWE is committed to supporting women at all stages of their careers, from those in grades K-12, college, the workplace, and beyond. We spark an interest in engineering and technology for girls through SWENext. SWENext is a way to become part of the Society of Women Engineers as a student through the age of 18. It is free to join and any student 13 or older can become a SWENexter. For those younger than 13, a parent will need to be the primary contact. More here.
