The Leadership Empowerment Workshops (LEW) provide engineering student leaders from Pi Sigma Pi, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and the Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) with the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills. The workshops are offered twice a year, once at the end of the spring semester and once at the beginning of the fall semester.

Each workshop series is a day-long program, which includes lectures, workshops and planning sessions that focus on the skills necessary for developing strong student organizations and successful student leaders on campus.

Pi Sigma Pi, NSBE and SHPE officers conduct interactive brainstorming sessions where they review goals, evaluate previous programs and develop new initiatives for the upcoming year. The sessions also facilitate interaction between upper-division student leaders and newer officers.
