Women in Standards is a community of standardization contributors, users, participants, professionals and service providers. Established by women working in standardization, the organization promotes inclusion in standardization, participation by all stakeholders, and provides support and education to assist our community in learning about standardization, finding the right standards committee for them, and growing their network.

The standardization process benefits from the inclusion of all stakeholders lending their experience, insights, and perspectives into how a standard will affect them and the people around them. These contributions to standardization create a better standard for everyone.
