Women’s Entrepreneurship Day will take place on November 19, 2020. SWE’s Entrepreneurs’ Affinity Group is hosting a week-long program that is open to all Society of Women Engineers members. The programs will be hosted live in the Facebook group.
Society of Women Engineers and why the Society has an Entrepreneurs Affinity Group. The Entrepreneurs Affinity Group is a community where you can find support and answers if:
- You have ever thought about starting your own business
- You have an idea
- You have a side gig or hobby that earns you income
- You’re a solopreneur
- You’re an established entrepreneur or founder with a team
- You’re an internal entrepreneur who practices entrepreneurship within corporate
We hold social and professional development programs regularly. This year, we hosted joint happy hours with other affinity groups, a book club, a discussion group on podcasts – and now a full week of programming in honor of Women’s Entrepreneurs Day.
Each day, Entrepreneurs Affinity Group Co-Leads (Katherine Culbert and Jennifer Braganza) will host a fireside chat live on Facebook at 5 PM Eastern.
