Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) form the crux of our civilization
We owe our improved quality of life to the continued efforts by individuals in STEM who toil hard to make the world safer, secure, and more sustainable. Yet, even with the brightest minds within this realm, only a small percentage of female graduates, take up and sustain fulltime careers in STEM and safety sciences as opposed to their male counterparts.
At UL Standards & Engagement and UL Research Institutes, we are dedicated to creating a safer, more secure, and sustainable future
In the Word to the W.I.S.E. podcast series, we bring a variety of women to engage in conversations on safety science, STEM fields, and the representation of women in these fields. They not only provide insights on what it is like to navigate the field as a woman, but also reflect on how they push the boundaries, develop resilience, confidence, and build a niche for themselves.
Word to the W.I.S.E. welcomes every woman in STEM to be part of a community of like-minded women who can empower, educate, and encourage each other.
