The Program

WE Local conferences depend upon the strong support of local volunteers and leaders who strategize, inform and promote the events. 

The WE Local North America program is a partnership between SWE Headquarters (HQ), the WE Local Advisory Board (LAB) and WE Local Host Committee (LHC) Chairs. The program offers members the opportunity to obtain leadership experience, time and project management skills and knowledge working with diverse, multi-generational virtual teams.

Similarly, the WE Local conferences in Europe and India are guided by their respective WE Local advisory boards, made up of women living in the region and representing the local cultures and interests. Meet the WE Local Europe Advisory Board and WE Local India Advisory Board, and contact us at international@swe.org to learn how to get involved.
