SWE provides personal and professional development, networking events and outreach opportunities for our members. The strategic plan at Mines, along with the Engineering Deans diversity pledge, emphasize a push for more diversity in STEM. This is an opportune time for SWE to take its place within these initiatives.
No matter the size of your gift, you will help make a lasting impact on women at Mines and in the community:
With funding from the challenge and bonus gifts, we will be able to reach more of the women at Mines - and beyond - with our programming. At a time when admissions is working hard to increase the number of women attending Mines, we are a resource for female students. These funds would allow us to provide more hands-on community outreach events at local high schools, scholarships for current and prospective students, and more major-specific networking opportunities for our members.
