It was an awesome opportunity for us to share about TMT as a project as well as our passion working at TMT. - Feronika
I enjoyed networking with other attendees and learning about the speakers’ experiences within the industry. - Pavithra
This was the largest Society of Women Engineers (SWE) National Conference in History. The annual flagship event brought together over 20,000 attendees from all around the world and included a career fair, keynote speakers, engaging panels, numerous networking opportunities and 200+ workshops and presentations.
I told many of the young women that we would be around for their entire careers, so to keep checking on our progress! - Kerry
We had a huge impact at the career fair and planted the seed of the idea of working in an observatory in many minds and hearts. - Angelic
In addition to providing a forum for professional development and networking, SWE helps engineering students seeking internships and career opportunities to connect to the corporate world.
The staff at the booth presented TIO for the first time at SWE, shared various career paths and opportunities, and were thrilled to connect with fellow engineers, and engage with engineering students, and leaders in tech. It's been a whirlwind of learning and connection.
I came out of the conference feeling energized and ready to apply the new ideas and perspectives to my work. - Kanu
I really appreciate all the differing paths, perspectives, and understanding the collective experiences of many in various engineering fields, which provides new insights for me personally and professionally. - Melissa
