Event Recap
We recently hosted a dynamic panel at UMBC, bringing together early-career women engineers from immigrant backgrounds to discuss their journeys and experiences. The turnout was fantastic and the engagement was even better! We delved into some critical issues that resonate with many in our field such as navigating discrimination, mentorship, and imposter syndrome. Let’s continue to support and uplift each other in our professional journeys.

Annual Pi Day Fundraiser


Pi Day may be over but we prefer to celebrate pi all month! In the SWE-BWS community, we are strong supporters of this holiday, as it celebrates both our favorite irrational number and our favorite dessert.

This year, we will be holding our 4th annual Pi Day fundraiser throughout the month of March. In order to participate, all you have to do is:

  1. Go to your favorite local bakery, pie shop, or pizzeria (yes, pizza is pie)
  2. Make a purchase
  3. Send us a photo of your receipt at treasurer@swe-bws.org

SWE-BWS will match the price of your purchase and pledge the amount to World Central Kitchen, a foundation that distributes meals to individuals and communities in need. Our hope is that throughout March, we will not only raise money for this organization, but also support local businesses throughout the DC-Baltimore area. Let’s see if we can surpass the amount raised in 2023!

We hope you take this opportunity to enjoy some delicious food! Please email us at leadership@swe-bws.org if you have any questions.

Annual Pi Day Fundraiser


It’s that time of year again: PI DAY! In the SWE-BWS community, we are strong supporters of this holiday, as it celebrates both our favorite irrational number and our favorite dessert.

This year, we will be holding our 4th annual Pi Day fundraiser throughout the month of March! In order to participate, all you have to do is:

  1. Go to your favorite local bakery, pie shop, or pizzeria (yes, pizza is pie)
  2. Make a purchase
  3. Send us a photo of your receipt at treasurer@swe-bws.org

SWE-BWS will match the price of your purchase and pledge the amount to World Central Kitchen, a foundation that distributes meals to individuals and communities in need. Our hope is that throughout March, we will not only raise money for this organization, but also support local businesses throughout the DC-Baltimore area. Let’s see if we can surpass the amount raised in 2023!

We hope you take this opportunity to enjoy some delicious food! Please email us at leadership@swe-bws.org if you have any questions.
