From IEC Young Professional to President of the IEC National Committee of Sweden

An interview with Stina Wallström

Last April, Stina Wallström was elected President of Svensk Elstandard (SEK), the IEC National Committee of Sweden. In this position, Wallström is responsible for guiding the national committee and leading its involvement in international fora.

Standardization has been a leitmotiv throughout Wallström’s career. She first realized the importance of standards when completing her graduate studies in chemical engineering and has been engaged in standardization work ever since. Her initial foray into the IEC began with her participation in the Young Professional Programme (YPP) in 2013.

In an interview with e-tech, Wallström tells us more about her current work in standardization and encourages the next generation of leaders to become involved.
