The UsersTCP Academy builds on the success of a half century of webinars delivered through the DSM University. The new series provides access to the knowledge developed through our research programme and the wider work of our partners. The Academy is active through monthly webinars.
How can energy standards help to promote Gender Equality and Social Inclusion?
IEEE standards association has launched the “Dignity, Inclusion, Identity, Trust, and Agency” (DIITA) Industry Connections Program to consider causes of exclusion which can be addressed by advancing technology for humanity through standardization and related solutions. Within the program, the Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Workstream identify barriers to gender equality and social inclusion with a focus on technical standards for affordability and accessibility that support the progress of practical technologies to address these barriers. The key question that we address: How to integrate GESI considerations in the development of technical standards with the view to incorporating GESI in system design, as well as policy and planning? At this webinar, we will present the work of the GESI workstream, and discuss how standards can help create including energy technologies for future transitions.
