Philadelphia Society of Women Engineers (SWE) was founded in 1950, along with the Society as a whole. SWE’s mission is to empower women to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers and leaders; expand the image of the engineering and technology professions as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion.

We strive to fulfill SWE’s mission through our events, outreach, and community.
