Welcome to the Society of Women Engineers,

Baltimore-Washington Section

Welcome! You can find events, information and keep up-to-date with your local SWE section here. Our mission is to stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders and expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force. 


Call for Original Content Submissions!

“Engineering Our Lives” Feature

Local engineers that identify as female: we want to hear your story! We are seeking original content submissions that would be posted to the SWE-BWS Facebook page and website in a new “Engineering Our Lives” feature. Tell us about why you chose to become an engineer, about experiences you have had along your education and career journey, what resonates with you about SWE, and anything else you think will be illuminating to your fellow engineers and allies. Submissions from all ages, backgrounds, education levels, and career statuses are welcome. We want to hear about YOU!

Guidelines for submission:

  • Word limit: 700

  • The “Working Life” feature in Science illustrates the kinds of submissions we are seeking; original writing that tells an engineering-related story to a wider audience.

  • Email submissions to leadership@swe-bws.org, with the subject line “Engineering Our Lives”

  • Provide complete contact information with your submission, including email address & phone number

  • SWE Membership is encouraged, but not mandatory.

  • You will be notified if your article is selected to be featured on the SWE-BWS Facebook Page and website.

  • Questions? Email us at: leadership@swe-bws.org

Happy writing!
