Michele Nogueira Lima

2022 Member-at-Large
Latin America/North America Region

Position Statement

I have been very well-received as an active member of IEEE ComSoc for many years, participating in volunteering services such as journal editorship, conference organization, and technical committee events. My intention is to continue to serve IEEE ComSoc and extend IEEE ComSoc receptivity to many others, strengthening the diversity in gender, age and geographic region. If I have the honor to be elected Member-at-Large, I will work passionately to make IEEE ComSoc a more inclusive and accessible platform for its members, individuals, and organizations across the world. I will work to reinforce the attraction of new members and ensure that ComSoc’s initiatives are aligned with the needs of its members. I will pursue inclusion, providing equal opportunities to members; advance the development of approaches to ensure ComSoc is welcoming to new members, including students and those just starting their careers; and strengthen local Chapters’ engagement adapted to the Region.
