The Society of Women Engineers(SWE) is a student organization at MSOE, as well as an international society. SWE is open to anyone interested in promoting individuals in engineering and other STEM fields, including females and males, engineers and non-engineers. As campus moves forward from COVID-19, we are reminded of our mission to develop students professionally whether that is through leadership/development workshops, networking with companies, or attending our annual regional or society conferences.
We have the opportunity to attend WE22, The World's Largest Conference for Women Engineers and Technologists, October 20th - 22nd! This annual conference will be a unique opportunity for us to network with professional and collegiate members while attending a Career Fair with 100+ exhibitors, and a multitude of workshops with presentations topics ranging from technical innovations to TED Talks on women's advocacy. Last year we were able to have five officers attend the conference in person and one member attended virtually. This year we are hoping to have six officers attend the conference in person!
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Conference registration fees are not covered by the university nor any of our annual fundraising events. Registration fees are $100 per student, not including transportation or accommodations – that’s why we need your help! If we could raise $2,500, that would help us greatly to offset the cost and allow our officer e-board to attend the WE22 Conference. Reaching our goal would also enable us to extend the invitation to general members, increasing the impact on our organization.
Our goal of going to the conference is within reach but we need your support! Please help us get there by making a gift to our campaign. No amount is too small, and every gift will assist us in reaching our goal. We can’t wait to share with you what we learn at the convention and keep you updated on our progress until then! Thank you for your support!
