Award Levels

After a successful pilot program, SWE A4E best employers for diverse women in engineering and technology will be recognized annually at one of three award levels based on their overall score on the application:

Please note that no public recognitions will be made in 2021 or 2022. After a successful pilot program, SWE A4E will focus on providing positive recognition to effect change. Recognized companies will be listed alphabetically (not ranked) and the names of companies that do not meet the requirements for recognition will be kept confidential. Once recognitions are incorporated into the A4E program, the SWE A4E list of best employers will be publicly announced and promoted in news releases to the national press and to SWE’s 40,000+ members and stakeholders through its multiple media outlets, including:

SWE A4E best employers will also receive a digital award logo to further promote their recognition, and be acknowledged at SWE’s Annual Conference. Additional opportunities will be offered to companies to promote their recognition, including a company profile on SWE’s Career Center

SWE A4E will offer various participation packages to deliver the level of performance results, analysis, and recognition that is best for your company. More information about the package levels and associated benefits will be shared after the conclusion of the pilot program.
