Career Guidance Ideabook.
King, Candace; Collarini, Cheryl
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a nationally based, non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging women to pursue careers in the field of engineering. The specific objectives include informing young women of the achievements, qualifications and opportunities open to them; assisting women engineers in returning to active employment after temporary retirement; encouraging high levels of achievement in education and their profession; and serving as a center of information on women in engineering. Many thousands of volunteer hours are spent by members every year to implement this important task. This Ideabook was created to share career guidance ideas between SWE sections to help improve and build career guidance programs. The book is divided into six chapters: (1) "Basic Programs"; (2) "Outreach Programs"; (3) "Student Sections"; (4) "Scholarships"; (5) "Fund Raising"; and (6) "National Committee." Each chapter includes basic information about the chapter topic and a series of attachments which include forms, surveys, and examples of materials used by other sections. (CW)
