Inspire More Girls to #BeThatEngineer

Are you a leader in your community with a passion for STEM? If so, make sure to order our FREE SWENext outreach brochures to help show young girls how THEY can #BeThatEngineer!
A Day in the Life of Industrial Engineer Becca Lasky

Our free SWENext outreach brochure is a great tool for teaching girls about the disciplines of engineering and showing them real examples of women engineers who are passionate about their careers in STEM. Below is a sample of the kind of information and role models available in the brochure. If you are hosting an outreach event in your community, SWE would love to send you a pack of these brochures at no cost. Place an order today, and together we can inspire girls to #BeThatEngineer!
