Women in Energy

Women in Energy Webinar Series

The Women In Energy webinar series seeks to build a power network of women trailblazers in the power and energy industry, and to unite associations and platforms. The aim is to create an inclusive pool of women making change.
The webinar series for 2020 focuses on the inequality of women in the African energy sector, so painfully highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We would like to address the challenges women face across the energy sector by inviting thought leaders who are working to ease energy poverty, inspiring women entrepreneurs and using their ambition to succeed in the energy sector while widening the circle to include their sisters in energy.


The Women In Energy three part series for 2020 will address the following topics:

  • Strategic importance of including women in business to address diversity
  • Focusing on talent management and women’s leadership in the energy sector
  • Bridging the energy access gap through gender inclusion
  • Business opportunities specifically aimed at women

Women in Energy: Social enterprise opportunities in the energy transition
 

Overview

Moderated by Chief Anita Nana Okuribido, Nigerian-based chair of the Women in Sustainable Power Africa network, the webinar discussion looked at how social enterprise initiatives in the energy sector offer training to women in rural Africa.
