How Professionals Can Benefit from We Local As Well
Professionals get a lot out of WE Local just like students do. We talked to Ashley Pietz, a SWE Professional Member, about why she attends WE Local. Last year she was the WE Local Advisory Board Chair and on the nominating committee.
Pietz not only attends WE Local to network with professionals and new collegiate members but to catch up with people she hasn’t seen in a while.
“WE Local as a professional is a great way to give back to those that might need a little help figuring out what they want to do in their career as well as figuring out what you might do for your next step.” Pietz said.
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.
