SWEP of Greater Philadelphia 2020 Initiatives 

The SWEP of Greater Philadelphia’s Board of Directors (BOD), have collectively agreed to focus on 5 main points, and work together as a board and with SWEP volunteers, to further define and grow each initiative in 2020.

The focus points are:

  1. Technical programming - recruiting additional resources and member-volunteers to bolster this very active committee, develop quality of content and quantity of technical programming opportunities, and tie-in the benefit to our members in a clear manner.
  2. Fundraising tied to membership benefits - expand the fundraising role to extend beyond the timeframe of the Touchstone Awards and make it a year-long committee.
  3. Expand our groups’ diversity - increase focus on generational, cultural, racial, gender, orientation and abilities diversity.
  4. Develop processes and procedures for each SWEP committee - each committee will be creating their own ‘How To’ manual to clearly lay out the committee tasks and best practices.
  5. Govern ourselves clearly and by the established rules and regulations - continue to develop a working understanding of the established bylaws.

If you would like to learn more about SWEP of Greater Philadelphia’s 2020 initiatives or become further involved in the organization, please reach out to any of the BOD members or Executive Board.
