A Note from the President

Hello all!

I hope you’re all as excited as I am about the coming year! Since 1954, PSWE has been dedicated to its mission: “To empower and support women through innovative programs that provide technical and leadership experience in open and encouraging environments.” Our executive board has been working all summer to plan a variety of events for our members to take advantage of. During Industrial Roundtable (IR), we have professional development and networking opportunities that give our members a leg up in the job search. For our new members, we have a great mentor program that pairs new members with upperclassmen. Returning members can look forward to some unique new social events we are planning for this year. To hear more about how to get involved, attend one of our callouts (7pm August 28th in FRNY G140 or 7pm August 29th in ME 1130). As always, the best way to keep up to date on what’s happening with PSWE is by visiting our website, swe.purdue.org .
