Continuing Education

Whether you have just started your career or have more than 20 years of experience on the job, it is important that you continually understand and identify your learning needs. The competency model provides an overview of the core competencies which have been identified for leadership in addition to a leadership assessment and professional development opportunities. With a better understanding of career and leadership development, SWE members can more effectively position themselves for advancement within their respective organizations and overall career track. View the SWE Leadership Competency Model.

SWE strives to be the gold standard in professional development, providing you with the knowledge to achieve excellence and to position yourself as a leader in engineering. Within the Advance Learning Center you have access to a variety of professional development topics using various learning modalities including: webinars, eLearning, podcasts, the coaching program, and more!

Diversity is the driver of innovation in the workplace, a core message the Society of Women Engineers is proud to promote through a partnership with Arup. SWE is partnering with the global multidisciplinary engineering, design and consulting firm to present the Diversity and Inclusion Knowledge Cards, an invaluable set of tools for organizations and companies looking for best practices designed to explore the value of diversity in the workplace.

“Because of our cultural backgrounds and upbringings, it’s often difficult to understand what diversity means in the workplace, as well as why it’s crucial for progress,” said Karen Horting, SWE’s executive director and CEO. “It’s our pleasure to provide a resource and tools for organizations committed to creating an inclusive environment.”

The knowledge cards feature provocative questions, summaries of current research, and intriguing data points to start conversations in the workplace and beyond. The thought-provoking resource gives businesses a means to begin meaningful change in their organizational structures by welcoming more perspectives at every level. Each card revolves around a key aspect of identifying the unconscious biases prevalent in the engineering industry in North America.

“Arup originally created the cards to allow our members to more easily access research results proving the existence of common unconscious biases,” said Erin McConahey, Principal at Arup and Diversity and Inclusion Advocate for the Americas. “We found that the data opened the door for analytical people to talk about difficult topics and share personal stories. ”

The limited-edition cards are now available for interested organizations. Individual card decks can be purchased by going to the SWE Store or by contacting SWE directly at Downloadable card activities and more information about this initiative can be found at
