Genevieve Kane is FY19 Collegiate Director for SWE and advocates for collegiate members to attend WE Local because it is a way to connect with people that you wouldn’t normally get at an annual conference.
“I really got to slow down and network with people that were closer in my area that allowed us to consider collaborations and to consider how we can utilize that time to build that section vitality.” says Kane.
We Local is a Society of Women Engineers (SWE) program that 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.
