IEEE is led by a diverse body of elected and appointed volunteer members. The governance structure includes boards for operational areas as well as bodies representing members in the 46 Societies and technical Councils and ten worldwide geographic regions.
IEEE and its organizational units engage in coordinated public policy activities at the national, regional, and international levels in order to advance the mission and vision of securing the benefits of technology for the advancement of society. The IEEE Global Public Policy website provides a window into these activities, as well as a repository of all public policy positions and statements adopted by IEEE or its organizational units in order to support the goal of engaging and informing IEEE members, the public, and policymakers around the world on technology-related aspects of public policy issues.
For over a century, IEEE has sponsored various programs to honor achievements in education, industry, research, and service. These awards and recognitions each have a unique mission and criteria and offer the opportunity to praise distinguished colleagues, dedicated teachers, and corporate leaders who have made a lasting impact on humanity, technology, and the profession.

As part of a global team, staff members have the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse set of colleagues whose talent and commitment to integrity make them one of the organization’s most valuable assets. IEEE offers competitive employee benefits for its full-time, part-time, and temporary employees.
