ABJ 2016


The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Regions A, B, and J are excited to announce a joint region conference on February 18-21, 2016 to be held in the beautiful northwest area of downtown Seattle! The conference will be hosted on the waterfront at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center. Join us as we EXPLORE what the world of engineering has to offer, ENGAGE women of all ages and backgrounds, and EMPOWER each other to take on new challenges and seek out our passions.

The Region ABJ 2016 Conference will begin on Thursday and Friday with tours and activities designed for participants to get to know the Seattle area and participate in the local culture. On Saturday, conference participants will explore a wide range of presentation tracks from technical development to career exploration to inclusion and cultural awareness and much more. Corporate sponsors and partners will be on-site for networking opportunities and a career hiring event suited for all experience levels and career backgrounds. To close out the conference on Sunday after SWE region business meetings, Regions A, B, and J will host an outreach event to engage and encourage Seattle youth to explore what it means to be an engineer.

In addition to the SWE conference offerings Seattle boasts a wide range of activities including world-class museums and theatres, historic landmarks, scenic hikes and viewpoints of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound, foodie-worthy restaurants, and of course fantastic shopping! Seattle is also home to numerous major corporations, government and military branches, and private companies as well as a growing entrepreneurial presence.
