IEEE HOU Sec. Webinar Series: Professional and Technical Development

The COVID-19 global health crisis was a unique challenge that impacted many of our members of the IEEE family. Governments around the world issued restrictions on travel, gatherings, and meetings in an effort to limit and slow the spread of the virus.

The health and safety of the IEEE community is the first priority during the pandemic and the IEEE Houston Section supported these efforts with a number of FREE Webinars.

Our HOU Sec. Chair Christopher Sanderson reached out to our community of partnership and relationships to help identify some key webinars.  The opportunity to help during these challenging times of no travel and self coroneted was our small part of Advancing Technology for Humanity.

  • Wouldn’t you want to know the law if someone/something hit your spaceship?
  • The occupied Moon, a shattered space station, and falling satellites. Were the Rebels or the Empire liable?
  • Did the U.S.S. Enterprise clean it up?
  • Can you turn the Moon into a Death Star?

Come learn about the laws of Outer Space both international and domestic. Special thanks to our Keynote presenters Grant Davis and Benjamin Ritz, JD

March 27, 2020 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Making smart decisions amid uncertainty times can be a challenging for all leaders, businesses, and organizations. If ever the phrase “VUCA” (the acronym for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity nature of today’s world) feels appropriate to use, it’s now. Leading your organizational teams during these uncertain times will be difficult and will require all who occupy leadership roles to keep fear in check and rethink risk beyond its usual parameters. Many leaders are struggling to strike the right balance between prudent cautiousness and panicked over reaction. This webinar is designed to give you some things to consider in a VUCA environment.

Special thanks to Andreas Fornwald, our VUCA Guest Speaker.
