Event Details

Come out and join the IEEE SCV GOLD and SIGHT in our annual Volunteer Information Evening to learn about a number of volunteering opportunities in the Bay area. Our goal is to arrange a diverse range of speakers for you from a number of organizations in the area. Some roles will allow for you to use your technical skills to improve the world, while others will be less technical in nature. It is our goal to find a number of volunteering roles with varying commitment levels from 1 hour one time to a few hours per month so that you can find a way to give back regardless of your schedule and commitment level. Current confirmed organizations for this evening include:

Speaker Organization
Elizabeth Otto We Teach Science
Mark Edelman FIRST Robotics
Mark Judge Resource Area For Teachers
Patti Pace NPower
Jill Finlayson & Brandee Krzanich Team4Tech
Celine Takatsuno SocialCoding4Good (Benetech)
Matt Merrifield The Nature Conservancy
Lynn Guest Engineering eWeek
Daniel Lottis IEEE Special Interest Group in Humanitarian Technology
Tim Worboys IEEE Young Professionals


Dinner will be provided by the IEEE SCV GOLD, but donations will be requested.

What is GOLD?
For those of you that don't know GOLD is the Graduates of the Last Decade affinity group of the IEEE. We primarily focus on helping recent graduates be productive in their jobs and to achieve success through networking (social), technical and professional development events. 
 
Why GOLD?
GOLD is a great opportunity and place for you to get involved and meet like-minded people in silicon valley while building your career at the same time. We are a great way to expand your professional network, or if you are new to the area you can meet new people. Not all of our events are technical in nature, we also run quite a few social events which make for a good way to relax after a hard day's work and also meet your fellow engineers.
 
Why Get Involved on the Committee?
Being a committee member is a great way for you to have your opinions heard and to shape the future of the IEEE and specifically the GOLD affinity group. You can plan events to help fellow Engineers build their career, and in doing so build your own career as well. Your involvement in IEEE looks great on a resume, and is also a great way to network with other respected engineers in your field who can help you fulfull your career goals. GOLD is a well sought after affinity group which tries to work with other societies and affinity groups which even allows you to make connections with more senior Engineers in industry. Furthermore, leadership positions available on the GOLD committee can give you great leadership experience which will provide you with transferrable leadership and management skills.
