Support women in engineering and a great cause

At Society of Women Engineers Santa Clara Valley (SWE-SCV) our work is important to us. We envision a world with gender parity and equality in engineering and technology fields. SWE's mission is to promote and assist with the recruitment, retention, and employment of women in engineering. We seek to stimulate women to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers. We also aim to expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, all while demonstrating the value of diversity. 

Why Society of Women Engineers Santa Clara Valley?


 The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), founded in 1950, is a not-for-profit educational and service organization. SWE is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career for women through an exciting array of training and development programs, networking opportunities, scholarships, outreach and advocacy activities, and much more. SWE empowers women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering and technology professions as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion. 


The Society of Women Engineers was founded in 1950 with the ultimate goal of increasing the pipeline of women entering engineering and technological profession. Even as we fast forward nearly 70 years into the future, the under representation of women in STEM fields continues. 

Our organization is actively trying to create solutions and solve the problems that the engineering community is facing. However, our efforts to solve the lack of women in engineering and technology won't reach its maximum effectiveness unless we have the backing of the community.  


 We are asking for your help and support. SWE SCV is a recognized 501c non-profit and 100% volunteer run.  All of our events are funded through corporate sponsorship and individual donations.  Without the generosity and support of our sponsors, we would not be able to hold successful events year after year. More importantly, having the support of our community helps us come one step closer to solving the ultimate problem. 

For company representatives interested in sharing sponsorship information with the rest of your company, you can find our sponsorship package in the section below. We are thankful for all the help and community support we received from our members, partners, and local companies. Thank you for making a difference. 


I would like to say that I appreciate their work so much ! It is amazing that they are exposing high school girls to such a great community of young girls interested in the steam field. Without this program I would have not been interested in taking general engineering in the future ! Thank you so much no words can explain how grateful my family and I are.
