SCEDA Women will focus on the following initiatives for the 2023-2024 Membership Year.

Professional Development

Join us next Spring for a half day professional development training to help SCEDA Women advance their careers. The event will include a professional development speaker followed by a luncheon and “Women Behind The Projects” showcase to highlight the roles women are playing in SC projects. More details will be provided as the program is developed, but right now we could use your thoughts and ideas on who might be a good speaker or topic for the professional development portion of the program. Click here to let us know your suggestions.


Thank you to all who brought your gently used, professional clothing donations to SCEDA’s Annual Conference for East Cooper Outreach. We were able to donate 40lbs of clothing. Due to the success of this event, we will plan to continue at future SCEDA meetings.


We will plan to expand and strengthen the structure for SCEDA’s growing mentoring program and will be sure to highlight this program throughout the year at existing events. Thank you to everyone who has connected with your mentor/mentees already.

Community Outreach

The SCEDA Women’s committee will continue to discuss and decide how SCEDA Women can focus on workforce challenges through outreach to high school and college students. We may be reaching out to you for more input as we move forward.

A survey has recently been sent out encouraging members to participate in a committee.  If you selected the Women’s Committee we will plan to include you in planning efforts moving forward.  If you have not responded to the survey but would like to be a part of the women’s committee, click here and let us know.
