The annual WE Local Conferences bring together collegiate and professional sections all around the United States in order to celebrate the accomplishments of the local region and engage members in more intimate settings. It is an opportunity for UT SWE members to interact with other collegiate leaders advocating for women in STEM and to network with local professionals who can serve as mentors. Attendees leave conference with a better understanding of SWE’s mission and a greater sense of community.
While at conference, attendees can participate in a variety of interactive workshops and engage with recruiters at the Career Fair. Attendees will also be able to mingle with members from other collegiate sections to learn what make their organizations successful.
WE Local Conferences are similar to National Conference but on a much smaller scale. Therefore, it is a wonderful introduction to SWE for new members who want to be more involved with the organization and are curious about SWE outside of UT. Attendees will gain valuable leadership skills, professional development skills, and friendships.
This year’s WE Local Conferences will be hosted in Baltimore, Tampa, St. Louis, Denver, Bellevue! Visit their WE Local website to learn more information.
