A Network for Life
Women who attend a Smith program build a network of what we refer to as true peers; other high-potential women to support them as they lead their companies in the midst of a volatile global economy. Participants learn alongside other women leaders from both their own and other companies in different industries from around the world.
Directing Innovation participants receive a one-year membership in the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and are encouraged to join the wider SWE network.
