Special Message from IEEE President
Karen Bartleson
IEEE President Karen Bartleson today released the following statement in response to concerns expressed by IEEE members around the world:

IEEE, The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Incorporated, believes that governments of all countries must recognize that, in a world of increasing global connectivity, science and engineering are fundamental enterprises, for which openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of ideas and talented individuals are essential to advancement. 

Every country benefits from attracting, and competing for, the best and brightest scientists and engineers from around the world to study, teach, conduct and collaborate on research, innovate new technologies, and start commercial endeavors.  Science and engineering lead to enhancements in quality of life and ultimately build economic prosperity and security.  All countries should develop and maintain immigration and visa policies that encourage, facilitate, and protect the ability of people, from around the world, to engage in these types of science and engineering activities.

Diversity is an important and valued strength; IEEE is committed to the realization and maintenance of an environment in which scientists and engineers, regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, or nationality, have the right to pursue their careers without discrimination.  Science, engineering — and humanity — prosper where there is freedom of movement, association, and communication.
