The Women in Standards (WiStandards) is proud to announce the launch of the Women in Standards website. The website is the culmination of many months of research and development and will provide Women in Standards members with new resources to assist them in growing their skills, learning more about the many standards developing organizations (SDO) operating today, and networking with the broader community.
The website provides members with valuable education on standardization and conformity assessment, a directory of known SDOs including information on how to join standards developing committees and submit public comments for each, and an events calendar with over 160 events all around the world related to standards development.
Through the website and associated events throughout 2020 and beyond, Women in Standards looks forward to engaging with all contributors to the standards development process, raising the profile of women working in and contributing to standardization, and assisting in the next generation of standards development.
Women in Standards is a nonprofit membership society incorporated in Maryland, whose stated mission is “To develop and promote a diverse ecosystem of standards development participants.” Visit the Women in Standards website for educational resources on topics such as standards development and standardization, conformity assessment, and professional development. The Women in Standards provides a community for standards developers and contributors to come together to grow and strengthen the field and promote issues of inclusion and diversity.
