SWE Collegiate Leadership Institute

Apply now for SWE’s Collegiate Leadership Institute (CLI) at WE16, October 27-29 in Philadelphia! This free program prepares women studying engineering to become the leaders of tomorrow in STEM.

CLI is a three-day program with highly interactive sessions. It provides advanced training on how to professionally engage in the workforce, tips on work/life balance as well as best practices for interviewing and job hunting. Speakers and facilitators are noted experts in leadership and career development.

CLI encourages and supports participants by helping them network with role models and industry professionals. It helps identify, inspire, and develop the next generation of leaders within the engineering profession. It provides students the opportunity to develop the key skills, knowledge, and capacity that will enable them to be global leaders in their engineering careers.

The program’s overall goal is to prepare women engineering and technology students to gain employment within the engineering sector and become leaders in their field. CLI attendees are provided resources to jumpstart their professional development, broaden their networking opportunities, and help facilitate their eventual transition into the workforce.
