Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers Boston Chapter

Mission Statement


SHPE Boston is a non-profit professional organization whose goal is to create the next generation of Latino leaders in engineering and science in the Greater Boston area (as well as the New England area, including MA, ME, NH, VT and RI). SHPE Boston achieves this goal by: (1) Providing educational workshops and seminars, including leadership training, and personal skills development and team management exercises, to its members; (2) Developing educational programs targeted at Latinos in primary and secondary schools located in diverse communities that spark curiosity and interest in science and engineering; and (3) Working with corporate partners and educational institutions to promote continuing education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) academic fields, and provide career development opportunities for its members.


Vision Statement


SHPE Boston believes that the New England region, and, in particular, the Greater Boston  area, is a premier place in the United States to cultivate and develop Latino leaders for careers in science and engineering due to its fast growing Latino population, its strong STEM educational network, and its high concentration science- and engineering-based companies. Based on these beliefs, SHPE Boston’s vision is: (1) To teach SHPE Boston members leadership skills they will use to become leaders in the organizations in which they work, and practice leadership in the communities in which they live; (2) To educate, excite and prepare primary and secondary school Latino students to pursue academic and professional careers in science and engineering; and (3) To be the premier organization in the New England area for science- and engineering-based companies to recruit and retain quality and qualified Latino talent.
