John Brooks Slaughter received the IEEE Founders Medal in 2022 For leadership and administration significantly advancing inclusion and racial diversity in the engineering profession across government, academic, and nonprofit organizations.

The IEEE Founders Medal was established by the Institute of Radio Engineers in 1952. It derives its character and purpose from the inspiring example of leadership and service set by the three founders of the Institute: Alfred N. Goldsmith, who was Director Emeritus and Editor Emeritus of IEEE, Messrs. John V. L. Hogan, and Robert Marriott.

This purpose is perhaps best expressed by the citation that accompanied the first award, which read in part: "For outstanding contributions to the profession and to the Institute through wise and courageous leadership in the planning and administration of technical developments."

The progress of a profession rests not only on the technical abilities of its members, but on the qualities of leadership and dedication that they possess. It is therefore highly appropriate that among the major awards of IEEE, there is one that brings deserved recognition to these important attributes.
