About WE Local
WE Local brings the energy and structure of the Society of Women Engineers’ (SWE) annual conference to create a hyperlocal experience. No matter where an Attendee is in their education or career, attending a WE Local conference is the best way to connect with- and -be inspired by other women engineers and technologists close to home. To learn more about the WE Local Keyote Opportunity including dates and times visit welocal.swe.org.  

Keynote Criteria
Due to the hyperlocal atmosphere, WE Local seeks Keynote Speakers who live in-, are from-, or do business in the city and state of each conference. Keynote Speaker content should not only be thought-provoking and motivational but also draw from personal experience. 

The most successful Keynote Speakers are those who are authentic and engage with the audience.
