Society of Women Engineers Announces Keynote Speaker for WE11 Annual Conference

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) recently announced Natalie Givans, senior vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton, as the keynote speaker for the Society’s WE11 Annual Conference, Oct. 13-15 in Chicago. Givans leads cyber security and privacy offerings and solutions for the firm’s Health market, and drives technology and overall offerings and solutions for the firm’s military accounts.

Early in her career, Givans made a conscious decision to ensure fulfillment and meaning drove her success rather than the other way around. In her keynote address, Givans will share some of the most pivotal lessons that have guided her on the path to achievement, including being an authentic leader, how being fully present can enhance one’s life, establishing and savoring balance, grasping the reality of success and how women can impact the world’s future. Givans’ inspirational address will help women engineers determine how to balance demands with rewards, and will be meaningful for any woman who has ever struggled with identifying what she wants out of life.

“Natalie Givans is an unparalleled leader who tackles such vital issues as global terrorism and cyber security,” says Betty Shanahan, Executive Director and CEO of SWE. “WE11 attendees have a unique opportunity to learn from the exemplary career and life lessons of this extraordinary woman engineer.”

In addition to her role at Booz Allen Hamilton, Givans is the Chair of the Board of Directors for the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, where she has been a member for 25 years. She is also a member of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Alumni Association Board of Directors, serving on the Finance Committee and establishing an Ad Hoc committee on Energy, Environment and Sustainability. Givans holds a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from MIT.

WE11, the largest gathering of forward-thinking women engineers and technologists, will take place Oct. 13-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Nearly 5,000 expected participants worldwide will have the opportunity to network and gain knowledge that will advance their careers, launch innovation and help them define their own success.
