#Internet #Policy

As we work together to support the mission and vision of the IEEE, we must remain steadfast in our support for the use of a standardized and peer-reviewed approach in support of scientific research. This will remain is a critical tool for successfully navigating our complex world. Without it, we would be forced to rely solely on intuition, other people’s authority, and blind luck.

IEEE President Land will discuss cancel culture, social media, its possible impact on the science and technology community and the role IEEE and our members must play.
