State of Women in Engineering
Friday, November 6, 2020

Join us to hear more about current research and trends on the state of women in engineering. During this special one-hour event, you’ll hear from SWE researchers and other industry leaders on women in STEM leadership, gender bias, STEM workplace culture and more backed by recent data and research.

The State of Women in Engineering is a must-attend portion of WE20 for media partners interested in learning more about the gender gap in STEM – what’s causing it and what are possible solutions.

Invent it. Build it.

Saturday, November 7, 2020
9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Ernst N. Morel Convention Center

Invent it. Build it. (IIBI) is SWE’s annual event for girls in grades 6-12. At IIBI, girls participate in hands-on engineering activities and learn about how engineers help people and make a difference in the world. They’ll also have an opportunity to talk to real women engineers about their careers.

The event includes a parents and educators program for information on engineering careers and scholarships, as well as an EXPO featuring engineering clubs, engineering camps, competitions, after-school programs and more from the local community.

Despite performing at similar levels as their male counterparts, girls’ confidence and interest in engineering and math experience a decline during middle school. This is largely due to lack of support and lack of resources/programs available to girls that encourage their interest in STEM.

Career Fair

Thursday, November 5 – Friday, November 6, 2020 *Member and Non-Member hours vary.

The Society of Women Engineers has been and will continue to monitor the ever-changing, daily developments regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and any potential impact it may have on the WE20 Annual Conference. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our members, partners, and staff. Currently SWE is planning for an in-person conference in November, but is working diligently to determine all possible options and best practices surrounding WE20. This could include hosting a virtual conference or a hybrid in-person/virtual conference. We will be finalizing our strategy and the path forward for WE20 in June. We will share additional information as soon as it becomes available.
