We are witnessing an extraordinary test of the human spirit the past few months as governments and institutions worldwide take steps to protect people and prevent the spread of the global pandemic resulting from COVID-19. With the switch to telework and telehealth, the technologies created by IEEE members are clearly making a difference, and will continue to play an important role in the new world economy when we emerge from this pandemic.
This presentation will address some of the educational resources available through IEEE to keep our members connected, engaged, and supported – now and in the future. Programs such as EPICS in IEEE, and IEEE’s Humanitarian Activities bring together students, NGO’s, and professionals to address challenges in their local communities through innovative technological solutions. You can make a difference in your community by serving IEEE in volunteer leadership roles that enhance your professional development and leads to fulfilling careers.
As I reflect on my association with IEEE over the past 38 years I can say unequivocally that the values that I have learned are the ones that drive me every single day: To be “Inclusive, Collaborative, Accountable, Resilient, and Ethical”. Simply put “I CARE” and I know that is true for IEEE members everywhere. There has never been a better time to share, learn, and grow.
