Women in Instrumentation & Measurement

On May 22, 2021 the IMS AdCom agreed to take the WIE Pledge on Diversity in IEEE Conferences and Events. This entails supporting the inclusion of a diverse set of speakers, which will lead to more creative, interesting and representative panels across the IEEE.

This Pledge formalizes a practice that the IMS has long followed, starting from the AdCom candidates, members and Officers, and also extended to editorial boards and events. Years of such practice result in a portion of female AdCom members (exceeding 1/3) that exceeds significantly that of the IMS membership. Two out of three Plenary speakers are female at I2MTC 2021, the major conference of IMS. IMS LEADS THE WAY IN DIVERSITY!

IMS WIE Liaison Ferdi Ponci, thanks to the financial support of IMS, participated in the WIE International Leadership Conference, held May 2021 in virtual form. This was an outstanding event, and brought a bit of visibility for IMS in the WIE community.
