Forum: Women Leading the Global Energy Transition
Gender diversity drives innovation, opens new pathways for technology deployment, brings valuable perspectives to social and economic development, and provides a richer pool of talent for key and emerging industries. In the landscape of global issues requiring strong leadership and a skilled workforce, few areas are as critical as the transition to a sustainable energy system. Yet, the energy sector continues to be male-dominated. In order to advance the role of women as agents of change in society and promote best practices within the sector, the forum aims to provide the stage for a dynamic dialogue on the challenges and barriers, the lessons learned but most of all, the success stories of women leaders in the energy transition.
More information on the speakers of this forum will be provided soon.
This forum is organized by GWNET - the Global Women's Network for the Energy Transition. Founded in 2018, GWNET empowers women in energy through interdisciplinary networking, advocacy, training, coaching and mentoring. GWNET seeks to address the current gender imbalances in the energy sector and to promote gender-sensitive action around the energy transition in all parts of the world.
