Event description

Description

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) St. Louis Section, is proud to be hosting the 2017 Region i Conference February 24-25, 2017. We look forward to welcoming up to 250 professional and collegiate members to St. Louis from the Region i states of Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Wyoming.

The Annual Region i Conference supports diversity in STEM, offers networking opportunities, and provides personal, professional, and SWE development. The 2017 conference theme is “Engineer like a Girl”. We want to support the conversation of women in engineering, and discuss the obstacles that women face in the workplace. Recognizing unconscious biases and managing culture change from all levels is a difficult task, but iCON17 strives to give participants the tools to be successful, to provide answers to the hard questions, and to educate the work force about the challenges minorities face in engineering. We will provide the conference attendees with the ability to combat biases and stereotypes, and the confidence to say “I can engineer like a girl”.

Don't delay, book your room for the conference through our room block: http://group.curiocollection.com/SocietyOfWomenEngineersRegionalConference
