Plan to join us in Omaha at Corkscrew Wine & Cheese

Eastern Nebraska SWE is hosting a Get to Know SWE event at Corkscrew Wine & Cheese at Rockbrook Village in Omaha on Thursday, September 28, 2023.

This will be a fun social to reconnect with other members and supporters of this great organization. Please invite a co-worker or friend who may be interested in learning more about SWE. We welcome all visitors.

We will enjoy some drinks and appetizers while discussing plans for this coming year. We welcome you to bring ideas for tours, maybe the name of a speaker, or a topic that is of interest to you. We like to include both professional and personal development and Work/Life balance topics at our meetings. Some of our past events have included yoga, meal planning, painting class, technical writing, business etiquette, financial planning, just to name a few.

SWE is also very involved with STEM outreach. We will share all of our upcoming outreach opportunities.

There is NO COST to attend this event; however, we are asking you to please RSVP to help us with planning for seating and menu planning.

Please see the event details below for more information and to RSVP.

SWE will provide appetizers for this event but beverages will be on your own.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our President, Janis Pfingsten at
