Membership & Outreach Mission
The IEEE Photonics Society is the global professional home for members of the laser, optoelectronics, and photonics community. The Society strives to provide its members, in varying stages of their careers, with unique opportunities to grow professionally and technically. The Society creates programs geared towards peer-to-peer connections, continuing education and increasing volunteering opportunities.
An outreach goal of the IEEE Photonics Society is to have an increasingly positive impact on the global society by expanding the role and understanding of photonics in daily life through education, outreach, and public relations. The volunteer leaders of the Membership Council are dedicated to diversifying the range of individuals and perspectives building the photonics technology and information of tomorrow.
