True to its mission of advancing technology for humanity, IEEE has programs across the organization aimed at improving quality of life. But with dozens of projects to choose from across various programs, how do members decide which to get involved in?

To help, 10 groups have united to form the Humanitarian and Philanthropic Opportunities (H&P) Initiative, providing a one-stop shop where members can discover opportunities that best match their interests, expertise, and availability. The initiative launched at the IEEE Sections Congress, held in August in Sydney, and was organized by the IEEE Foundation and the IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC).
