SWE Announces Virtual Annual Conference and Career Fair
October 12, 2020

The Society of Women Engineers, the world’s largest advocate and catalyst for change for women in engineering and technology, has announced the 2020 annual conference and career fair, WE20, will now be a two-week virtual event scheduled for November 2-13, 2020.

WE20 provides a platform for women in engineering to gather with like-minded peers, share innovative ideas, make connections for career advancement and ultimately make strides in recruiting more women in engineering.

“Based on the current status of COVID-19 and global conference trends, we’re excited to announce that WE20 will take place in a safe, all-virtual format,” said Heather Doty, president of SWE and aerospace structural engineer. “Over the span of two weeks during WE20, thousands of women will have the opportunity to make connections with each other, learn from the industry’s leading experts, explore new career possibilities and practice curiosity.”

WE20 will feature more than 200 professional development sessions, a four-day career fair offering both full-time and internship opportunities to female engineers at all career stages, daily yoga and virtual networking throughout the conference. WE20 registration provides access to all the meeting content for a full year.

Professionals and collegiates will have the opportunity to hear from four inspiring keynote speakers:

• Laura Maxwell, senior vice president of supply chain, PespiCo Foods North America,
• Sundari Mitra, vice president, general manager of SEG, Intel Corporation,
• Jennifer Rumsey, vice president and president components business, Cummins Inc., and
• Linda DuCharme, president of upstream business development and integrated solutions, ExxonMobil
