The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) conference has become virtual, according to its organizers.

WE20 is now a two-week virtual conference and career fair scheduled for 2-13 November 2020, the SWE said.

WE20 reportedly provides a platform for women in engineering to gather with like-minded peers, share ideas, make connections for career advancement and help recruit more women in engineering.

‘Based on the current status of COVID-19 and global conference trends, we’re excited to announce that WE20 will take place in a safe, all-virtual format,’ said Heather Doty, president of SWE and aerospace structural engineer. ‘Over the span of two weeks during WE20, thousands of women will have the opportunity to make connections with each other, learn from the industry’s leading experts, explore new career possibilities and practice curiosity.’

WE20 will feature more than 200 professional development sessions, a four-day career fair offering full-time and internship opportunities to female engineers at all career stages, daily yoga and virtual networking, according to the SWE.
