Title: IEEE Committee: Women in Engineering


1
IEEE CommitteeWomen in Engineering
  • Allan Johnston
  • NPSS Liaison
  • July 19, 2014

2
WIE Structure
  • Currently part of Member and Geographic
    Activities
  • They provide budget and oversight
  • They attend the WIE in-person meeting, and are
    actively involved in overall management
  • The WIE has nine voting members
  • President is appointed by MGA
  • Society liaisons do not vote
  • Most of the communication is in monthly hour-long
    telecons
  • There are typically about 25 people on each call
  • Much of the business involves small amounts of
    funding for affinity groups
  • The current president has (wisely) required prior
    discussion on those funds before the telecons

3
WIE In-Person Meeting
  • The annual in-person meeting was held May 4-5 in
    San Francisco
  • Thirty-seven people attended
  • John Day, Director for Member Products and
    Geographic actitvities
  • About 20 of the IEEE Society liaisons attended
  • Main topics discussed
  • University activities, particularly affinity
    groups
  • Membership (slight decline still 70 students)
  • Additional telecons with selected groups
  • Society Liaisons
  • Members of selected subcommittees (charter,
    business plan, etc.)

WIE Budget Issues
  • WIE has a very limited revenue stream
  • Membership fees 25 for members, 0 for
    students
  • Some advertising income from the WIE magazine
  • An annual conference has been proposed, but there
    is no associated publication
  • I am a member of a subcommittee working on a
    better budget model
  • Income in kind needs to be counted, particularly
    society activities
  • Some direct revenue from society activities would
    help the overall budget picture
  • The initial proposal is a voluntary 10 tax on
    society WIE functions
  • This is small enough to avoid undue penalty
  • For the NPSS, it would amount to about 2.5k
    annually
  • Overall revenue from the various societies could
    be as high as 30k

5
Society Liaison Telecon
  • The first society liaison telecon was held on
    June 26th
  • About 15 members attended
  • Good opportunity to focus on that part of the WIE
    program
  • A number of societies have had WIE events for
    several years
  • The Circuits and Devices society provides a
    complimentary luncheon
  • The Systems and Control society has had WIE
    events for 20 years
  • Everyone agreed that networking was one of the
    key advantages of these events
  • Scheduling WIE events in busy conferences was a
    problem for everyone

Society liaison telecons will be held
approximately every two months

Publicizing WIE Events at NPSS Conferences
  • The majority of NPSS Conferences now have WIE
    events
  • In some cases it is difficult to find out about
    them
  • e.g., the 2012 WIE event at NSS/MIC was buried
  • The 2013 WIE event at the same conference was
    clearly identified
  • We need to make sure that WIE events are clearly
    identified in conference brochures as well as at
    the conference
  • I can help with this, but I need contact
    information for WIE events at each conference
  • At the 2014 NSREC, the WIE event is called out as
    a special event on the registration form
  • It is also listed in the Technical Program
    (invited speaker)

WIE Functions at 2013 NPSS Conferences
Complex activity involving students and teachers
Pulsed Power
Radiation Effects
Breakfast with keynote speaker
The Radiation Effects Committee approved a
similar function for the 2014 Conference (Paris)
NSS/MIC
Reception and panel discussion
Up to 5000 per function is authorized by AdCom

Summary
  • WIE functions continue to take place at several
    NPSS conferences
  • I need to report these to the WIE
  • Evening receptions and panel discussions appear
    to be effective formats
  • NSREC added a WIE function for the first time in
    2013, and is continuing to do so
  • These activities fill an important gap between
    the WIE Committee, which is largely focused on
    student activities, and working professionals
  • Please advise me of conference functions so that
    I can include them in my report to the WIE (an
    important metric for WIE)
