The 7th StandICT.eu 2023 “Walk & Talk” webinar will introduce the community to the “Women in ICT Standards”.
The link between technology and women’s is growing stronger every year and clearly reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals 5 on gender equality and the empowerment of women, which includes a specific target on how to leverage technology and ICT assets to fully achieve women’s empowerment.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are foundational elements for the development of standards with a view to shape a world where everyone is adequately represented regardless of race or gender.
Nowadays, the role of women is widely recognized within the ICT Standardisation landscape for their valued participation and contributions on Standards & Certification committees and activities (across a broad range of ICT areas).
In this Webinar esteemed representatives from various European and International Standards Developing Organisations will come together to discuss their effort, achievements and current activities in the respective ICT technological domain, how the role of women in ICT gained releveance over the past years and how to encourage more and more women to be active in the field.
The video recording and presentations will be made available after the conclusion of the event.
