Why advancing Women in Energy is so important

I believe women must play a central role in the transition to clean energy. On the one hand women are disproportionately exposed to negative health, social & economic effects of energy poverty in households and on the other they are under-represented within the energy industry today, especially at the leadership level. Aligning gender with environmental and sustainable development goals may help us to accelerate the transition to clean energy.
