Four members of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) tell us why they attend WE Local conferences. The WE Local season starts Friday, February 8, 2019, in Baltimore, Maryland, followed by four conferences in Tampa, Florida (February 15-16), St. Louis, Missouri (March 1-2), Denver, Colorado (March 15-16) and Bellevue, Washington (April 5-6). Women in engineering and technology have five opportunities to meet locally and learn socially.
WE Local brings together participants in all stages of their collegiate and professional journey. The program hosts conferences across the globe so engineers can connect through professional development workshops, inspirational speakers, networking opportunities and outreach activities.
