In this workshop, participants move beyond the superficial “fake it ‘til you make it” advice and dig more deeply into understanding themselves and the foundation for building value. Participants will learn how to frame their accomplishments in ways that showcase the value they bring to the business and build their skills in thinking more strategically. This session is particularly useful for women in engineering to help them transition into a stronger leadership position.

Welcome to SWEP-MA!

The Society for Women Environmental Professionals (SWEP) is a national non-profit professional association of women involved or interested in environmental law, science, engineering, business, and policy. Our chapter serves as a resource for members in Massachusetts, providing opportunities for professional development through networking, educational programming, mentoring, social events and public service.

SWEP is a unique organization composed of professionals from a variety of disciplines, providing members with greater exposure to information from and contacts in diverse environmental practice areas.

SWEP-MA (our Massachusetts chapter) is planning a full year of great networking opportunities including notable speaker dinner events, monthly meet and greet receptions, business skill development programs, and public service activities.

Be Part of the Leadership of SWEP-MA!

SWEP-Massachusetts is an active organization supporting those involved in or interested in environmental law, science, business and policy. In 2006 a group of enthusiastic women decided to create a SWEP chapter here in Massachusetts. Almost 10 years later… it is time to create a new leadership team!

We invite you to become part of a new SWEP Leadership Committee.

This organization relies upon the dedication that our volunteers give to make our events and programs happen! Now we need new leadership to continue the vision of SWEP-MA.

Anyone interested in guiding the future of SWEP-MA by being part of the Leadership Committee, please email us at: info@swep-ma.org

Thank you to all who have volunteered to assist on various committees! We'll continue to need your help once our new Leadership Committee comes together.
