Standardization is an art of making consensus. My education and working experiences have filled me with professional standardization strategies on achieving such goals with different stakeholders. Firstly, I come from the country with the largest number of corporate members of IEEE SA, giving me the natural sense to understand them and strengthen the impact of IEEE SA. Secondly, my education background in the birthplace of IEEE SA helps me cooperate with the largest number of individual members of IEEE SA. Together, I could build bridges between the two forces. Thirdly, I have also learnt how to built multi-lateral collaborations with experts from different background. Fourthly, my leadership and working experiences in both industry and academy research motivate me to integrate IEEE SA and technical societies more closely if I am elected. I am willing to serve in BoG with these experiences and grow with IEEE SA in the future.

Dorothy V. Stanley 
(Nominated by IEEE Standards Association)

HPE Fellow
Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Warrenville, Illinois, USA

Dorothy Stanley currently serves as Chair of the IEEE 802.11 Working Group. She has been involved in wireless LAN product strategy and standards activities at since 2005, leading and participating in IEEE 802.11, Wi-Fi Alliance, Wireless Broadband Alliance, and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards developments. She has also served as liaison from IEEE 802.11 to the IETF and currently co-chairs the IAB-IEEE 802 Coordination committee. Her work in standards development and industry interoperability programs has supported Wi-Fi industry innovation to enable solutions that provide significant consumer and economic value in the global marketplace.

Among Dorothy’s awards are 5 patents, a Wi-Fi Alliance Members Achievement Award, and numerous IEEE Standards Association awards.



The IEEE Standards Association has a unique role in global standards development, enabling individuals and entities with common technical interests to define standards in well-developed and emerging technology areas.

I believe that the Board of Governors must continue to raise the visibility of IEEE SA as a world class venue for standards development, promote IEEE-SA activities and provide opportunities to engage individuals, government bodies, and industry organizations. The Board must identify and respond to the emerging needs as it has with development of the open source and industry alliance initiatives. These actions will provide a broader set of IEEE SA solutions to meet the market, consumer, and societal needs for standards, consensus building, and the use of technology.

I bring to the Board of Governors experience in the day-to-day realities of development of a large and consequential IEEE standard, understanding the challenges of reaching consensus, and adjusting to the pandemic challenges.
