The Pandemic’s Effect On Women Engineers

On Tuesday, March 23, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) hosted a Facebook Live session with SWE’s FY21 President, Heather Doty, and SWE’s assistant director of research, Roberta Rincon, Ph.D. During this session, Roberta spoke about SWE’s recent survey on the Impact of COVID-19 on SWE Members (the majority of which are women engineers and technologists). View the recorded session below!

If you are a STEM student, recent graduate or professional who is experiencing the negative personal and/or professional impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage you to explore and register for our new SWE Reignite Your Light workshops. These workshops were created specifically in response to SWE’s survey to address and combat concerns about the present and future of one’s career. Read more about our Reignite Your Light workshops here.

Roberta also co-hosted a SWE Diverse podcast with SWE’s director of editorial and publications, Anne Perusek, to discuss the upcoming issue of SWE Magazine, the State of Women in Engineering (SWE’s annual research issue). Listen along as Roberta and Anne discuss SWE’s recent research, with a large focus on the impacts of COVID-19 on the engineering pipeline and K-12 education.
