Engineering Ethics in the Modern Workplace

Morals and Morsels with Conrad Robinson: an IEEE Columbus/PES Joint Event
How does the economic and cultural climate of the country affect our daily decisions as engineers?

And why should we care? Join the Columbus IEEE Section and the Columbus Power and Energy Society as we snack on appetizers and apply the NSPE code of Ethics to the everyday decisions of a 21st century engineer.

Note: 1 PDH credit will be offered for this presentation. Please RSVP.

Who: Columbus IEEE members, Power and Energy Society Members, and guests

PES/SWE Joint Event: Electrical Engineering EmPOWERment

Electricity and electronics are the backbone of modern society. However, electrical engineering has one of the lowest proportions of bachelor’s degrees awarded to women– less than 13% annually– with even fewer women staying in industry after five years. Why do so few women succeed in the field? And what can we learn from these engineering elite? Join the Columbus sections of the Power and Energy Society (PES) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) for snacking, networking, and a panel discussion with the women who power our world.

Where: AEP Ohio Building, 700 Morrison Rd, Gahanna
When: Friday 01/25/19

  5:30-6:00pm Networking/Refreshments
  6:00-7:00pm Presentation and Panelist Q&A Event

RSVP: Contact cbus.pes.webmaster@gmail.com by 01/21
