About SWE

The Society of Women Engineers is the world’s largest advocate and catalyst for change for women in engineering and technology. To ensure women reach their full potential as engineers and leaders, the Society offers unique opportunities to network, provides professional development and shapes public policy. SWE champions the value of diversity. We inspire young girls to become engineers and support them with scholarships in order to expand the engineering profession’s ability to improve the quality of life for billions of people worldwide. For more than six decades, SWE has given women engineers a unique place and voice within the engineering industry.  

We invite you to explore the values, principles, and priorities that guide our initiatives and learn how together, WE can continue to make a lasting impact on the future.
