The Society of Women Engineers is committed to establishing engineering as a highly desirable career for women and providing the mentoring and training/development opportunities to build our members’ confidence and success as they advance in the profession.
At the collegiate level, SWE works with a number of sections on campuses around the country to support leadership training through the Student Collegiate Leadership Curriculum program. The program was designed to identify and address those areas of most relevance to our collegiate members, particularly those serving in section leadership positions as well as those approaching matriculation and entering the workforce.
Each program module focuses on a key competency area, ranging from active listening and communication to strategic planning and fundraising. The programs are presented by a member of SWE’s Collegiate Leadership Coaching Committee (CLCC), someone who has had experience as a section officer and who has committed to completing additional training to qualify as a participant in the program.
The modules tend to focus on one of two areas:
A complete list of module topics appears below.
The program has been generously underwritten by Agilent Technologies. As such, the workshops/presentations are done at no cost to the section.
Since its inception, well over a thousand student members have attended one or more sessions. The average ranking is 4.6 out of 5, testifying to the immense value of the program. See what other officers/members are saying about these programs.
"The executive board in our collegiate section is constantly looking for new, fun ways to build and retain our membership. The session on Building Membership provided great insight into new strategies for the executive board to utilize and implement.
The CLCC made it extremely easy for our SWE section to improve strategies on building membership. Their flexibility and willingness to work with our section's schedule provides a wonderful opportunity for us to learn new techniques guaranteed to help with a vast range of topics. The CLCC is truly a SWE library on wheels!"
