Word to the W.I.S.E. (Women in Science and Engineering) Podcast Series

Unveiling UL Standards & Engagement's Gender Action Plan - Sonya Bird in Conversation with Mark Ramlochan

UL Standards & Engagement
October 12, 2022

In this episode, UL Standards & Engagement Operations Manager Mark Ramlochan and Director of International Standards Sonya Bird discuss UL Standards & Engagement’s Gender Action Plan, which includes the recent signing of the Declaration for Gender Responsive Standards and Standards Development from the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

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.
