Jan 5, 2014 The Toronto Young Professionals (formerly GOLD) Affinity Group has recently been awarded the First Annual "Best Canadian Young Professionals Affinity Group" Award by the IEEE Canada Member Services Committee, for their excellent volunteer work and dedicated services for drastically raising the profile of IEEE in Toronto. Through a unique series of workshops, panels, and networking mixer events in 2013, the Toronto Young Professionals team was able to successfully raise awareness for young professionals (not just engineers!) in Toronto about exciting opportunities that have the potential to shape their short- and long-term success. Over the coming year, the team plans to organize and promote several high-impact events for students and early career professionals, by engaging key industry players, leveraging IEEE resources, and building strong partnerships with current and prospective sponsors. Please keep your eye out for the first big Young Professionals event in 2014!

How do I register for GOLD?

Anyone who has graduated from University within the last decade and is a member of IEEE automatically becomes a member of GOLD. 

Why are we here?

  1. To promote a well-balanced professional life by operating around the non-technical aspects of engineering: professionalism, personal development and community involvement.
  2. To address personal and professional needs of recent graduates (career development and exploration, networking,  personal management)
  3. To provide young professionals with the opportunities to contribute to the engineering community and to develop their non-technical skills
  4. To organize events for EVERYONE in IEEE, from professional, technical to social in content
  5. To have events and activities which focus on young professional’s career needs and interests
