At WE17, TE Connectivity Ltd., a world leader in connectivity and sensors, made a $100K contribution to the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) to provide scholarships for women and girls pursing engineering degrees. This generous contribution rounded out more than $830,000 in scholarships awarded to 255 collegiate women in FY18.

SWE Comics Educate Future Engineers
In FY18, SWE released the second issue of Constance & Nano Engineering Adventure! This educational engineering comic engaged our future generation of engineers, demonstrating how fun solving problems with science, engineering, technology and math can be.

To celebrate the launch, SWE and United Technologies held a comic challenge for a chance to be drawn into the issue. Seventh Grade SWENexter, Angel Chukwudi, from Abuja, Nigeria, won the challenge and flew to the United States to join SWE at WE17 for the comic book launch.

SWE’s Local Events Expand
SWE’s local conference program, WE Local, expanded to seven conferences across the globe in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Phoenix, Arizona; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Portland, Oregon; Providence, Rhode Island; Pune, India; and Prague, Czech Republic. More than 3,000 women in engineering attended the conferences for professional development, career advancement, networking and inspiration. WE Local continues to encourage women in engineering to Meet Locally. Learn Socially. across the globe.

Revamp on Professional Development
In FY18, SWE launched the new Advance Learning Center interface to help users better access learning materials and allow for mobile usage. The new Advance Learning Center enhances online professional development opportunities with hundreds of webinars, continue education unites (CEUs), e-learning courses and live events.
