We're looking forward to starting a new school year with you! If you're a new SWE member, welcome and thanks for joining us! If you're a returning SWE member, we're excited to have you back!
We've talked a little bit about what SWE is at our general meeting, but I just wanted to take a minute to expand on that a little more. SWE is a great organization. It's focused on supporting women in STEM fields, with a focus on engineering fields. There are several "branches" of SWE, which include collegiate branches (like us!!) and professional branches. Some companies have their own SWE branches!
SWE has a ton of awesome resources, including scholarships for women in engineering. Being a part of SWE is a great way to network and make connections in your professional field. I recommend joining us for the conferences if you can! They're a great way to connect with fellow SWE members, attend career fairs, and learn from academic talks. We'll be attending 2 this year, one in California and the other in Buffalo.
We're excited to get to know you guys! We've got some fun events planned this year, but would love to hear what you would like to see from us! Feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any recommendations, if you need help, or just to say hi! We would love to hear from you!
We're looking forward to another great year!
