Is diversity a problem or a resource for IEEE?

I always thought and strongly promoted that diversity is essential and should never be impaired.
Diversity is part of our life and, consequently, should be an essential value for IEEE.

IEEE members have different employment type: academia, industry, government agencies. What is your perspective on their satisfaction balance?

All groups of our scientific and professional community should be equally nurtured. While maintaining and reinforcing the services and the products which are valuable to academia, we should expand and create more products and services addressing the needs of professionals, industry and entrepreneurs as well as people in government agencies.

How do you think IEEE should support professional continuous education?

Continuing education is an essential part of being an engineer. To remain on the leading edge of technology and innovation, especially in the rapidly-evolving, emerging, and interdisciplinary knowledge which is the foundation of modern complex applications, continuing education is crucial to ensure ability of addressing modern challenges and develop innovative solutions, as well as advancing the technologies.

IEEE aims at “Advancing Technology for Humanity”. How would you encourage IEEE members to envision and embrace this perspective, so far from engineering education?

Strategic actions can be envisioned in various directions to point out the value of advancing technology for the ultimate benefit of humanity, i.e., for the social and economic advancement of the society as well as for improving the quality of life of every individual:

Collaboration among Organizational Units is important to promote research, development, education, and membership. Do you have any plans to push efficient collaboration further?

Since some years, I am promoting collaboration among Societies, Technical Councils, Standard Association, Regions, and Sections to understand respective needs and synergies as One IEEE. This approach strengthen bonds, improve effectiveness, enhance knowledge dissemination, expand people networking, support interdisciplinary areas, increase service/product users, reduce duplications, and reduce expenses.

Across Organizational Units, I would like to promote:

What are your plans for increasing net revenue of Organizational Units and for reducing overhead expenses?

Transparency of decisions and finances is essential to understand budget. Pervasive and deep participation of diverse-thinking volunteers and Organizational Units to decision processes is essential for comprehensive analysis. These principles should be preserved for appropriate monitoring and control.

To ensure transparency we should:
