Diversity at Work: SWE’s Joint Member Partners

How SWE’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging extends beyond the organization and across the globe.

Community and diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) are at the heart of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).

As a global organization, we recognize that the power of community extends outside of the organization and can be especially impactful for those within specific segments of the world’s population, including women engineers who identify as LGBTQ+, Black, Hispanic, Asian, and Indigenous peoples.

To that end, we partnered with several other key organizations in the engineering space to provide our FY24 members greater access to these communities by offering discounts on membership.*

These organizations, known as Joint Member Partners, deliver additional value for their respective groups, including supplemental support, expertise, and referrals. Tap into the following organizations who share SWE’s commitment to empowering all women in engineering:
