This past weekend, 16 PSWE members hopped on a plane and flew to Philadelphia, PA, to attend the WE16 National Conference. This conference provided opportunities to develop professional skills, meet members from sections all across the country, and network with over 10,000 female engineers. From Thursday to Saturday, there were hundreds of workshops featuring topics such as leadership, career development, and new technologies.
It was really hard to choose between two or three awesome workshops happening at the same time! Over 300 companies attended the conference career fair and conducted interviews with candidates. On Friday morning, PSWE members had brunch with Purdue alum and shared some news on campus with the alum. During the weekend, we also walked around the old city area, explored the city, and tasted Philly cheesesteaks!
