Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers: Perspectives on Technology, Society, and Ethics
One of the objectives of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is to ensure that technology is harmoniously and sustainably harnessed for humanity. Recently, the IEEE has adopted a code of ethics. In this session, a leading member of IEEE outlines the organization’s perspective on social considerations and ethics, and the implications for social inclusion and gender equality in engineering practice. It also presents some practical examples of its work in community energy.
