The Society of Women Engineers will present its first Online Career Development Conference March 13-14, 2014. Featuring an array of accomplished speakers, the event brings together distinguished presenters to share their thoughts on how women can take control of their careers.
“We listened to the needs of our 26,000 members worldwide and worked to attract the brightest leaders in career development,” said Peter Finn, SWE’s deputy executive director and chief learning officer. “The online format means regardless of schedule or location, attendees can take advantage of this slate of speakers’ perspective on professional advancement.”
