Farewell FY17

My dear SWE members,

This is my last official post to you as Graduate Member Coordinator. Fiscal Year 2017 has come to an end and I leave you in the very capable hands of Genevieve Kane. This upcoming year promises to be one filled with exciting new initiatives which Genevieve and the rest of the team will champion.

Looking back, this year has been a great year for SWE and the Graduate Community. We saw our influence within the Society grow to record levels. By the numbers:

  • 70+ graduate students at the We16 GradSWE reception
  • 6 webinars hosted
  • 21 Grad Member and Group spotlights
  • Blog: 6405 visitors, 10314 views (19% and 9% increases from FY16 July-May)
  • Facebook: 465 likes (40% increase since start of FY17)
  • Twitter: 190 followers
  • LinkedIn: 130 members
  • Instagram: 88 followers

Now, I wish all of you success in your future endeavors. Good luck with your classes, jobs, and research. I believe in each and every one of you and your power as a Woman and as an Engineer. Thank you all for allowing me to the honor of serving you this past year.

Sincerely yours,
Liz Dreyer
