Urban Engineers (Urban) is pleased to announce that Jennifer Pesch, PE, LEED AP, has just embarked on her second year as Vice President for the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Philadelphia Section.
Founded in 1950, SWE is a not-for-profit educational service organization consisting of nearly 20,000 members worldwide that empowers women to succeed and advance in the field of engineering, and to be recognized for their life-changing contributions as engineers and leaders.
“We are fortunate to have her joining our officer board again this year, as Vice President of Communications, where she will spearhead our efforts to develop a new communications strategy,” Alexis Wasserman, SWE Philadelphia President, said.
In her role last year as Vice President of Outreach, Pesch organized SWE’s efforts for four major events, the Engineering Mini-Camp at Widener University, the Girls in Engineering and Related Sciences Day at the University of Pennsylvania, a booth at the Philadelphia Science Festival Carnival, and an activity table at the Philadelphia Science Festival Discovery Day.
A SWE member for five years, “Jennifer stands out for her great qualities and is quite well-known within the Philadelphia section for her intelligence, work ethic, positive attitude, teamwork mentality, attention to detail, and diligence to complete the task at hand. I would like to commend Jennifer’s involvement in SWE,” said Wasserman.
Pesch, who is a Senior Environmental Engineer, stated, “It’s an honor to be re-elected as a key board member for SWE Philadelphia. So many young women have the potential to excel in engineering, but don’t have the resources or support to enter into the field. This is why SWE’s mission of helping women achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders is very important to me as a female engineer.”
