funds for the National SWE Conferences! Read this bio of Sydnee Mayers who had the opportunity to attend this year's conference: I became involved with SWE during my sophomore year at Notre Dame. It was during this year that I became a member of the SWE Tech Team, a small team of female engineers that competes in an annual innovation challenge sponsored by Boeing. The SWE Tech Team encouraged me to take the technical skills I developed in the classroom and utilize them in the South Bend community. My involvement in SWE and the Tech Team gave me the opportunity to attend and present at WE16, SWE’s annual conference for 2016, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In addition to attending the conference, I was able to submit my resume on SWE’s Career Center website, which landed me the internship opportunity of a lifetime. During Summer 2017, I will be working as an Engineering Sales intern for Johnson Controls, Inc. in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Becoming a member of SWE has given me countless opportunities in personal and professional development, all of which contributed to my upcoming internship opportunity. Most importantly, SWE has given me a support system of friends and colleagues who have helped me strive to become the best professional, engineer, and woman that I can be.
Donations are necessary due to the high costs of traveling around the country to attend networking events such as the SWE conference. We will use the money raised from Notre Dame Day to send students, like Syndee Mayers, to the National SWE Conference and community outreach events. The opportunity to network with professionals at the national conference, though expensive, has helped many Notre Dame students to receive job offers from nationally recognized companies that do not come to Notre Dame for regular recruiting. At the national conference, members are able to network with other SWE members and learn more about SWE's impact on a national scale while growing both personally and professionally through the various breakout sessions and events.
