Dear friends and family,
Greetings from Cambridge, Massachusetts! We are Harvard SEAS SWE, a newly-established collegiate chapter of the Society of Women Engineers. In our inaugural year, we have already cultivated a strong community of female engineers and are actively working toward inclusivity and diversity in our engineering school. We’ve held events such as a Fusion 360 workshop and hosted a build-bridging competition / engineering social for prospective students. This coming Fall, we have an exciting set of events lined up, including a industry tours, professional development workshops, and networking events.
Our members are driven, intelligent, and passionate. They are leaders inside and outside of Harvard and each one is forging ahead in the world of engineering. Our goal is to provide female engineers with two things: a supportive network of engineers and the opportunity to attend a professional conference. With our administration one-hundred percent behind us, our growth has no bounds.
Our programming for the upcoming year includes:
- Community Service: Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (an interactive event to show younger female students fundamentals and potential of engineering); volunteering at Boys&Girls Clubs of Boston to provide mentorship and encourage interest in STEM
- Professional Development Workshops: How to Create a Personal Website / Portfolio, and Finding Research Opportunities, Grad School Pathways, and many more
- Industry Tours: to better understand engineer workflow/role and facilities/resources in companies
- Engineers of Harvard: a photo series highlighting female-identifying engineers at Harvard
- WE18 Conference: Attending the world’s largest conference for women engineers
I cannot think of a better time to invest in Harvard engineers. As the oldest Ivy League engineering school, we have the advantage of being small but prestigious. Harvard is attracting a lot of engineers: think top-notch research facilities and professors on the cutting edge of technology all at the disposal of motivated undergraduates. Harvard students not only receive the academic foundation for engineering, but also the tools to excel in applications and research.
I hope that you will join us in continuing our mission to support and promote women in engineering at Harvard and beyond. Harvard SEAS SWE has fostered a strong community of female engineers and allies, and with your help, we can accomplish so much more. Harvard SEAS SWE thanks you for your support and for helping us continue our mission to lift others up.
We look forward to working with you!
