WOMEN IN ENGINEERING
Location: Grand Gallery Overlook A
Date: Wednesday, August 2, 2023 • Time: 3:00 - 5:00 PM
IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) is a global network of IEEE members and volunteers dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists, and inspiring girls around the world to follow their academic interests in a career in engineering and science. Our goal is to facilitate the recruitment and retention of women in technical disciplines globally. We envision a vibrant community of IEEE women and men collectively using their diverse talents to innovate for the benefit of humanity.
Let´s meet for a networking and enrichment event during the Grand Rapids Symposium and share experiences. We, the IEEE WIE and the IEEE EMC Society, invite you to attend this free event. Join us for a special celebration at the end of the presentations.
Everyone is welcome - men and women - to attend the special presentations!

Dr. Todd Hubing, IEEE Fellow, Past President IEEE EMC Society, Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clemson University, President of LearnEMC
As a young engineer at IBM in the 1980s, Todd Hubing was fortunate to work and interact with many well-known EMC experts of that era. While most of these interactions were extremely helpful and enjoyable, he felt that there was a trend among experienced EMC experts to latch onto old ideas and dismiss new ways of thinking. He promised himself that, as he grew older, he would keep an open mind and that he would never become hypercritical or overly attached to one way of looking at things. Nevertheless, now that he is “a little” older and more experienced, he is finding it difficult to remain silent in the face of EMC information that is widely accepted, but (in his view) categorically false and a threat to everything we hold dear. This presentation discusses six examples of bad-thinking that Dr. Hubing feels should be banned from the EMC paradigm.
