WE Local San Diego, Special Announcement

One Collegiate Competition. Two Networking Events. Three Keynote Speakers.
Meet Your We Local San Diego Host Committee

One. Two. Three. This is exactly how SWE’s Senior Event Coordinator, Mackenzie Morgan, recalls the “three things to know” about WE Local. But for today’s special announcement about WE Local San Diego, I am switching “Collegiate Competition” to “Agenda.”

One. One Agenda.

WE Local San Diego’s online agenda and SWEet mobile app are now live! With over 40 breakout sessions, collegiate, professionals and even retirees will have a wonderful selection to choose from. Here are a few sessions that caught my eye:

  • Yoga for the Office Space
  • Tea about the T: A Beginners Guide to Transgender Inclusion
  • How Functional Color is Changing the Game in 3D Printing
  • Parents – Professional skills to the rescue at home!
  • Hey Guys…it’s your turn! Inspiring Action from Male Diversity Advocates

To view the complete schedule, check out the online agenda or download the SWE Event Mobile App.

Two. Two Networking Events.

WE Local offers all Premier Registration attendees two opportunities to simply network. On Friday evening, join fellow engineers, technologists and recruiters for the annual WE Local Celebration. This casual night is filled with activities, appetizers, giveaways and fun! The next blog written by SWE Member, Marie-Pierre Aldinger, featuring WE Local San Diego will highlight this wonderful evening.

If that’s not enough, we also have the Local Networking Hour (with breakfast!) on Saturday morning. With over a dozen table topics, attendees can interact with one another around a topic. Topics rang from Working Moms and Meeting SWE Past Presidents to discipline specific areas. More details will be added to the agenda in January.

To be a part of these networking events, register by Friday, January 17, 2020.

Three. Three Keynote Speakers.

WE Local San Diego is proud to announce the 2020 Keynote Speaker lineup as:

  • Wake Up, WE Local | Friday, January 31 | 8:30-9:45 a.m.
