IEEE SIGHT2021 SIGHT Week Celebration

The 2021 IEEE SIGHT Week celebration has been organized to foster a spirit of community for the global SIGHT network, increase awareness of IEEE SIGHT within IEEE, and celebrate the impact SIGHT volunteers and groups are making in their local communities. It will take place from 5 – 11 December.

Please join us in celebration by joining one of the activities listed below, or hosting your own. You can also spread the word by sharing a post on SIGHT’s FacebookInstagram, or Twitter! If you do, make sure to use the hashtag #SIGHTWeek2021.


Host a Virtual Event with your SIGHT Group

Due to the current global health situation and related complications caused by COVID-19, we strongly encourage our members to plan virtual activities and make good use of the professional education resources that both HAC & SIGHT have developed. Build your SIGHT Group’s capacity through a workshop, webinar viewing, or online course!

Here are some ideas for virtual events:

Share Your SIGHT Group Story!

Calling all SIGHT Group members! If you would like to share the story of what your SIGHT Group has done in 2021, send a video to so we can share it widely!
