graphic promoting A word with the Dow SWE Award winners

To continue to lead in diversity and foster an inclusive environment for women in STEM, we need to continue to listen and respond to the needs of our employees and customers.

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) awards are a prestigious recognition for individuals making significant contributions to the advancement of women in engineering and the STEM industries (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). SWE Individual Awards seek to recognize individuals and groups who support the core values of the Society: Integrity, Inclusive Environment, Mutual Support, Professional Excellence and Trust.

This year, five Dow women received individual SWE awards. I sat down with them and asked them to weigh in on the advancement of women in STEM.

We would also like to recognize nine women for receiving Patent Recognition Awards.
