Each year, SASE Spirit Week is celebrated on the first full week of November. SASE Spirit Week is an occasion for chapters across the country to recognize SASE’s three pillars and celebrate the founding of SASE.

SASE Spirit Week had its humble origins in remembering SASE’s birthday (formal founding as a nonprofit organization). What started as a single day celebration by a few chapters on Nov. 8th is now a national week long celebration. As SASE looks forward to its 2nd decade, it celebrates the 1st decade with all of its members, who contributed to the cause: “go-to organization for talent and leadership development in science, engineering & technology.” As we celebrate together, let’s help each other in the 2nd decade to make it even better! 

This Year's Highlights

During #SASENC2019, I gave a speech in front of over 1000 people. The best part wasn’t receiving the emerging leader of the year award or making the speech. It was hearing that my speech was “powerful and inspirational to all. One of the best out there and I mean comparing to even some of the keynote speakers. It’s from the heart.” It was learning that my speech almost made several audience members cry. The mind blowing part is public speaking used to absolutely be my greatest fear. I’ve made some objectively awful speeches in the past that have been burned into my memory. This is a milestone for me to see how much I’ve grown in overcoming my fear of public speaking. May this be a reminder that we can overcome anything! I will strive to be as inspirational as the #SASEfam has been for me! #SASESPIRITWEEK2019 #ReadyForPro.
