This webinar has concluded.

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.
