Connecting You Locally And All Around The World.
WE Local conferences take place around the world.
WE Local conferences are organized by the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) to bring together participants in all stages of their collegiate and professional journey. The conferences create space for engineers, technologists, and partners to connect through professional development sessions, inspirational speakers, networking opportunities, and more.
"I've spent quite a bit of time at the career fair, a bit at the breakout sessions and I'm learning a lot from other professionals in the industry."

“If you can’t see it, you can’t be it.”
Though a common refrain, it is true that women tend to be less visible in the engineering and technology sectors, further exacerbating their underrepresentation in the field. WE Local is a platform to elevate the voices of women leaders and spotlight role models for the next generation of engineers and technologists.
Regardless of your career level, you’ll leave WE Local with renewed inspiration and passion for personal growth.
