2021 Year in Review
Members' and Volunteers' Innovation
and Dedication Lead to Growth
We are proud to present to you the IEEE-Eta Kappa
Nu (IEEE-HKN) 2021 Year in Review. As the Honor
Society emerged from the shadow of quarantine and
closures brought on by the pandemic, its membership
grew, and its impact expanded. The work completed
in 2021 held fast to the IEEE-HKN's 2020-2025
Strategic Plan. Last year, 2021, was a year that saw
increases in student and professional member
inductions; nearly 66,000 hours of service from our
student members; and an invigorated and reimagined
HKN.org website.
The Board of Governors and Committee members
enhanced programming for Graduate Student
Members and alumni and reorganized its committee
structure to support activities for these members. HKN
developed and continues to add content to the IEEEHKN
YouTube channel. The channel has become a
great resource for watching professional development
webinars, tech talks, and podcasts focused on the
young professional experience as well as the Society,
its members, and its partners.
The IEEE-HKN Student
Leadership Conference
(SLC) attracted recordbreaking
attendance
with representatives
from 85 Chapters
from 22 nations. Apple
Co-founder and HKN
Eminent Member
Steve Wozniak kickedoff
the conference as
the keynote speaker. Some 52 other sessions and a
recruitment fair were held virtually over four days to
train and engage our Chapter leaders and members.
The Conference was funded in part by a generous
grant from the Samueli Foundation. This marks the
first time the SLC received a grant.
Richard Gowen signed the merger agreement between IEEE and HKN
in 2009.
We encourage you to read the articles and review the
statistics on the next several pages that illustrate HKN's
growth and impact. We hope they energize you to
engage and re-engage with the Society.
THE BRIDGE
The Board's focus on the future sustainability
and growth of HKN resulted in not only program
enhancements, but also increases in annual giving
and major gifts. A generous gift from HKN Eminent
Member and HKN President (1998-2000) Richard
Gowen and his wife, Nancy, paved the way for Alumni
Receptions. HKN members in all stages of their
careers will gather at small events held in conjunction
with IEEE events and conferences. Through these
gatherings, we hope to connect members with each
other and the society at large. We mourn the loss of
our friend, Dick (pictured below), who passed away in
November. He was a gentleman and scholar and was
integral to HKN's merger with IEEE. Read more about
Dick and his legacy here.
