Our goal is to host events that will be catered toward specifically enhancing members’ skills, introducing new skills, and
providing information and resources to achieve said goals. To allow Drexel SWE to grow with a steady increase in new
members, it must look beyond short-term financial goals and seek new sources of funding. To this end, Drexel SWE
would like to ask for your help. Your support will promote the visions of both SWE and Drexel University in cultivating
effective​ ​engineering​ ​female​ ​leadership​ ​in​ ​the​ ​global​ ​community.

More​ ​About​ ​Events​ ​You​ ​Can​ ​Sponsor!

Host​ ​a​ ​Career​ ​Development​ ​Event
Drexel SWE is excited to offer your organization an
opportunity to host an information session or a plant
tour. These events are some of the most anticipated
amongst Drexel students, and often extend beyond
SWE members. In fact, a recent corporate sponsored
event drew more than sixty student members and
faculty into attendance, half of which were outside of the
Drexel SWE student section. Events such as these
allow organizations to demonstrate their missions and
work​ ​to​ ​potential​ ​student​ ​co-ops​ ​or​ ​future​ ​employees.

Sponsor​ ​a​ ​SWE​ ​Outreach​ ​Program
To promote STEM education, Drexel SWE participates in
local STEM promotional events, such as the Philadelphia
Science Festival, and we host our own events for local
high school and middle school students at Drexel. Our
chapter also participates in local community service
events​ ​like​ ​Philly​ ​spring​ ​clean-up​ ​day.

Send​ ​a​ ​Member​ ​to​ ​SWE​ ​National​ ​or​ ​Region​ ​E​ ​Conference
Attending national conference allows many opportunities for Drexel students, including a career fair with over 250
companies and organizations represented, corporate networking and interview opportunities, and a poster competition.
Additionally, members could attend hundreds of
workshops ranging topics such as Career
Enhancement, Academia and Research, K-12
Outreach, Inclusion and Cultural Awareness,
and Wellness. Many of these opportunities are
also experienced at Region E conference, an
annual conference that brings together sister
members from over sixty schools in the
Mid-Atlantic​ ​region.

Support​ ​our​ ​Advocacy​ ​&​ ​Inclusion​ ​Events​ ​and​ ​Campaigns
Drexel University SWE aims to use our campus presence
to advocate for all underrepresented minorities in STEM.
As such, we have created events that facilitate challenging
yet constructive conversations about diversity,
discrimination, prejudice, microaggressions, harassment,
and other challenges in the workplace. We know it is
important to start these conversations so that students and
professionals alike can share their stories, and others can
learn from and advocate for them. We have also started
our HeForSWE campaign, which is a network of male
allies​ ​who​ ​support​ ​and​ ​advocate​ ​for​ ​women​ ​in​ ​STEM.
