SOCIETY OF WOMEN ENGINEERS
To stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity.
The collegiate section, D055, of the Society of Women
Engineers is centered around a passion for our members' success and continues
to evolve with the challenges and opportunities reflected in today's exciting
engineering and technology specialties. Our core values are Integrity,
Inclusive Environment, Mutual Support, Professional Excellence, and Trust.
The collegiate section, D055, of the
Society of Women Engineers also strives to provide STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) outreach to Memphis City
School students. Our section holds a wine tasting event once a year to provide
funds for collegiate activities and STEM outreach. This support also helps
members to attend national and regional conferences where they learn about
outreach as well as how to succeed in the professional world. The STEM programs
offered are aimed to inspire children to pursue a college education in these
fields and are paid for by the monetary support of our fundraising events.
