Region A’s Final Events 04/21/18: Leadership Summit & Region Celebration

Join us on Saturday, April 21, 2018 to celebrate Region A and its members. We will hold our last Region A Leadership Summit, and the Region Celebration to end the tenure of Regions with a party! We look forward to seeing you at one or both events. Everyone is welcome!

Leadership Summit:

The theme for the FY18 SWE Region A Leadership Summit is Finding Your Place in Engineering. This event will be focused on how to find your passion and how to continually pursue it in a male-dominated field. It will take place at Santa Clara University. The target audience is professional members with 0-15 years of experience and collegiate members of all ages. All professional and collegiate members are welcome to attend!

Leadership modules will be presented by professional and collegiate focused Leadership Coaching Committee coaches. The summit is limited to 50 attendees, we will open a waitlist when tickets sell out.


Fellow and former Region A SWE members & guests are invited to the gala dinner event. Enjoy connecting or re-connecting with members from all over Region A as we look back over the last 30+ years as a region and look forward to the future of SWE. The Celebration is limited to 150 attendees.

Thanks to the generosity of Microsoft, we will have the Celebration at their Sunnyvale, California campus, just a short distance up the road from where our Leadership Summit will be held earlier in the day.
