Bringing More Women Into Standards with Veronica Lancaster, VP of Standards Programs at the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)



In this episode, we discuss the importance of female participation in standards development, and explore how succession planning, networking, and mentoring play a pivotal role in shaping the next generation of standards leaders. Our guest is Veronica Lancaster, vice president of Standards Programs at the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). Veronica is also the president of the board of directors at Women in Standards, a community of standardization professionals that promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion in standardization. 

Through Word to the W.I.S.E., we aim to have these conversations, build awareness, and explore future strategies to increase women’s participation in the development of both standards and technical regulations. We will also explore examples of international standards that are truly gender responsive.

Remember, you too can have your say. 

Just use the #whystandardsmatter hashtag across social media and submit any questions or feedback on the Word to the W.I.S.E. podcast at ULSE.org/contact. We will try to address questions and comments in future episodes.

We also encourage all female leaders in STEM fields to participate in our standards development process by applying for membership on one of our Technical Committees.
