The collegiate section of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is hosting this year’s
regional SWE conference. The goal of this conference is to instill in all women engineers
a true appreciation for their potential to address the major global concerns of the
next several years. We want each woman engineer to be aware of the many possibilities
to positively impact society, contribute to the economy, and improve life for future
generations. The theme for our conference is “Strategic Women Evolving through Innovation”,
which will be highlighted through a variety of networking events, workshops, seminars,
and keynote speakers.

The Career Fair is free and open to the public 2-4pm, March 6. Students in science,
