Dr. Charlotte M. Farmer, senior vice president and chief operating officer at UL Research Institutes, has been inducted into the BEYA Hall of Fame to recognize her ongoing contributions to STEM fields.

Farmer, who received the Black Engineer of the Year Modern-Day Technology Leader award in 2015, was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Feb. 3 during the BEYA Metaquake Symposium in Washington, D.C. She was one of 11 inductees from across the country honored this year for their achievements in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

As she accepted the award, Farmer recalled her parents exhorting her throughout her childhood to “always be the best one there.”

“At UL Research Institutes, … we are all about keeping the world safe, secure and sustainable,” Farmer said. “And you’d better believe we are going to be the best ones, on behalf of society.”


On Feb. 10, at the 37th Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) STEM Conference in National Harbor, Md., two of our colleagues at UL Standards & Engagement — Standards Engineering Program Manager Denice Durrant and Senior Project Engineer Wil Fletcher — both received 2023 Modern-Day Technology Leaders awards.
