Society of Women Engineers has 27,000 members
The Society of Women Engineers, the largest advocate in the world for women in engineering and technology, has launched a new logo to celebrate its 65th anniversary.
It has also launched a new eBook, “We Built This: a Look at the Society of Women Engineers’ First 65 Years.” The society says the illustrated book is a “rich tribute to a past that forged the foundation of what is now the world’s largest advocate for all women in engineering and technology.”
Currently the non-profit organization has about 27,000 members, 55% of which are students. It was founded in 1950, and held its first national conference the following year in New York City. Dr. Beatrice Hicks was elected as the first president.
In early May this year, the SWE held its European annual conference in Amsterdam. It is holding its general annual conference and career fair, “WE15” in Nashville, Tennessee on October 22-24.
