SWE is Going Local!

Are you excited about WE local starting in 2017?

Ongoing member engagement and interaction happen at SWE’s Region and Section levels. In order to meet the demand of Region conferences, SWE headquarters launched WE Local, which includes conferences around the globe. WE Local conferences (in the US) officially launch in 2017 with two locations: San Jose, CA (Region A and J) and Pittsburgh, PA (Region G). The remaining region conferences (B, C, D, E, F, H, and I) will still be held in 2017. WE Local global conferences will also take place in 2017 in Pune, India and Amsterdam, Netherlands.  Beginning in 2018, WE Local conferences will expand to five US cities, with locations changing every year.
