Recap of Networking Events

The May Networking Event was lots of fun! We held a dinner at P.F. Changs in Edina and had a great group of SWE members attend! The food was amazing and the restaurant atmosphere was very lively. We were able to talk about SWE, current jobs and family life while having a great time. We plan to have a din-ner club event as a monthly occurrence and we hope you are able to join us!!

Exciting upcoming events!

As summer approaches, the networking events will be held outside to enjoy the great weather; rooftop happy hours, patio dinners, etc. More events are currently being planned for the upcoming months; check your weekly announcements for future events! If you have any suggestions for events, please email
