International Outreach


The International Outreach program strives to empower women and teach the fundamentals of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) around the globe while allowing its members to develop leadership skills and gain cultural awareness.

What is International Outreach?

The International Outreach program organizes a bi-yearly trip abroad to volunteer, promote women’s empowerment, and teach STEM. Founded in summer 2018, SWE members traveled to Jodhpur, India and Kampala, Uganda before the pandemic!

International Outreach gives its members opportunities to…

  • Build teamwork and leadership skills
  • Meet new people and make friends
  • Develop a global perspective and learn about new cultures
  • Travel
  • Volunteer
  • Have fun!

Olivia D’Souza

Hi everyone! My name is Olivia D’Souza, and I am an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science major. I love to visit coffee shops around town or catch a movie with friends! When I’m not working on homework or Badgerloop, you can find me running on the Lakeshore path, in a group fitness class at the Nick, or reading in a quiet spot somewhere on campus. I have been involved with SWE since the beginning of my freshman year and I am so excited to continue as the SWEIO officer this year! We have tons of opportunities for involvement coming up so be on the look out for sign-ups!!
