Join us on May 23 as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) hosts a two informative webinars on gender-responsive standards (GRS) and its 2022 GRS guidance document, published in collaboration with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Speakers will include UL Standards & Engagement (ULSE) Vice President of International Standards Sonya Bird, who is one of the founding members of the IEC/ISO joint strategic advisory group that authored the guidance document. The session will explore how the GRS document provides standards developers and technical committee (TC) and working group participants with important considerations and questions to aid their development of gender-responsive standards.

“These information sessions are planned to widen the knowledge about GRS in the IEC community. We always planned to explain the guidance document and how TCs can use it and these sessions provide us with an opportunity to do so,” Bird said.

The first session was held on May 23 and was translated into French and Spanish.

The second session will be held on May 30 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Central European Time (CET) and will be translated into French and Russian.
