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 side event aims to provide the stage for a dynamic dialogue on the challenges and barriers, the lessons learnt but most of all, the success stories of women leaders in the energy transition.
