September 15, 2009

Megan Richardson, ME'10, is the recipient of a $5000 SWE National - General Electric Women's Network scholarship. She is currently on coop at California's NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

"The Women’s Network was created in 1997 to help the women working at GE advance their careers and the company’s business. This effort includes sharing the experience, best-practices, and knowledge of successful women role models: the executive team represents a diverse group of women from each of GE’s businesses and critical corporate functions. Today the rapidly growing Women’s Network has evolved into a worldwide organization of over 150 Hubs (Chapters) in 43 countries helping thousands of women around the world.

At a global level, they have established a scholarship program aimed at supporting qualified women in college. Their goal is to support young women interested in technical or business careers while building a future pipeline of candidates for GE’s entry-level leadership programs. The Women’s Network is proud to have raised $431,622 through 2008, and to have given scholarships to 108 women." More information about the Women's Network can be found here
