You Have Questions, We Have Answers

Thank you for your interest in supporting WE Local Phoenix. WE Local conferences are a joint collaboration between SWE Headquarters, members and local organizations whose goal is to see women achieve their fullest potential in their careers as engineers and leaders.

In order to make your decision as simple as possible, we have included the below FAQ list. If you have additional questions, contact welocal@swe.org.

Who is the audience for WE Local?
The WE Local audience will be very similar to what is seen at the Society of Women Engineers annual conference. Participants will be women engineers in all stages of their career and will range from undergraduates to highly experienced full-time professionals.

What is the estimated number of attendees?
We cannot predict numbers for WE Local conferences, however for 2018, WE Local Phoenix will be at an expected attendee count of 500 premier registrations and will accepted registrations for the Career Fair (only) through the first day of the conference.

Why is there a cap on attendees?
WE Local Phoenix is committed to providing members a local experience. This local experience includes being able to engage and interact with local businesses and members who work and/or live in the same area. By capping the attendance, members are able to get better acquainted, build a strong(er) relationship with other members in the area and spend more time with organizations.

Is there a limit of how many companies can participate at the Career Fair?
Yes, WE Local Phoenix is set to 50 career fair tables. Selection is made on a first come, first serve basis, taking sponsor packages into first consideration.
