What is CES?

The Consumer Electronic Show is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. A high-level business event that touches all industries, it’s the place where business gets done.

A platform for innovators of all sizes to build their brands, CES is where every major technology company on the planet participates in some way — by exhibiting, speaking, sponsoring, attending or holding business meetings.

Why is ULSE attending?

As a leading authority in safety, UL Standards & Engagement can be a resource to attendees through the entire lifecycle of a product, from design to production to marketing. In return, attendees can take a front row seat in the safety standards development process. 

To be as effective as possible, the development of safety standards must incorporate diverse voices, especially women. Increasing women in STEM will help existing efforts working for safer and more sustainable products.

Growing Women in STEM
