Society of Women Engineers Supports U.S. News STEM Solutions

The Society of Women Engineers is proud to announce its support of U.S. News STEM Solutions 2014—The National Leadership Conference, taking place in Washington, D.C., from April 23-25. For the third year, leaders in education, policy and workforce development will convene to advance the national STEM agenda.

The Society of Women Engineers has a six-decade long tradition of providing a voice and a place for women in engineering. The Society’s mission is to stimulate women to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity.

This year’s theme, Where Employers and Educators Meet, exemplifies the mission of the U.S. News STEM Solutions conference – to engage a broad community of educators, policymakers and business leaders in finding solutions to a problem that is at the heart of America’s economic recovery.

As a recognized leader in STEM and supporting partner of the conference, SWE plays an important role, helping to shed light on STEM issues, including the roles of diversity and inclusion play in fueling innovation. The involvement of SWE ensures that each aspect of the national STEM problem remains top-of-mind.

U.S. News & World Report has enthusiastically welcomed the organization’s involvement. “We are proud to have the support of organizations who recognize the urgency of making progress on STEM,” says Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer. “We look forward to their valuable insights and involvement at U.S. News STEM Solutions.”

SWE invites you to help shape our nation’s future and has negotiated a special program rate for its network of contacts who register using code: SWE14.
