Nowadays technology plays a key role in changing the world for the benefit of humanity: IEEE must continue to be the global lead in this scenario. With the extraordinary expertise that our technology-centric communities can offer, together we can face this challenge and enhance our profession by:
- Being the trusted source for high-quality innovative and timely knowledge in current, interdisciplinary and novel fields, increasing responsiveness to the needs of scientists, practicing professionals, and students, and attracting new communities and the general public;
- Promoting inclusive internationalization and preserving diversity of technological expertise, profession, culture, geographical origin, gender, and age, while acting holistically in the evolving international scenarios and nurturing our local identities and communities;
- Empowering technology-centric communities worldwide by addressing their needs with a human-centered approach, seeking for more networking opportunities through social networks and new media sources, broadly engaging the young generations, and intensifying synergic alliances with local and international associations.
