Wichita Society of Women Engineers

About SWE

SWE was founded nearly 60 years ago to give women a unique place and voice within the engineering industry. The organization is centered around a passion for success and continues to evolve with the challenges and opportunities reflected in today's exciting engineering and technology specialities. SWE is a diverse organization of men and women, engineers and non-engineers, all dedicated to helping women engineers realize the opportunities ahead of them.

Our Mission

Stimulate women to achieve 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.

Our Objectives

  • Inform young women, their parents, counselors, and the general public, of the qualifications and achievements of women engineers and the opportunities open to them.
  • Assist women in readying themselves for a return to active work after temporary retirement.
  • Serve as a center of information on women in engineering.
  • Encourage women engineers to attain high levels of education and professional achievement.
