About SWE

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), founded in 1950, is a not-for-profit educational and service organization. SWE is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career for women through an exciting array of training and development programs, networking opportunities, scholarships, outreach and advocacy activities, and much more. SWE empowers women to succeed and advance in those aspirations and be recognized for their life-changing contributions and achievements as engineers and leaders.

About Our Proposed Section

The Proposed Shasta Cascade Section of SWE is a group of individuals with engineering and technical backgrounds who join together on a regular basis for technical and professional development, business meetings, and outreach activities. We are trying to form a SWE section in the Redding area (hence the Proposed) so if you live in the Redding area (your zip code starts with 960) and support women in engineering, please join us!
Documentation on how to start a SWE section is below. We need at least 10 paid members, so if you've been active with us, please consider joining the Society. Click here to Join.

The Regions

SWE is broken up into Regions, and we reside in Region A, the 'Golden West' Region.  Within each Region there are Sections and also MALs (Members-At-Large) who live in remote areas and don't belong to a specific Section.  Right now the Redding area is included in the MAL category, but we'd like to be a section.  Please join us in this endeavor.
