Why advancing Women in Energy is so important

I think (hope) we all now recognise the value of diversity in the workplace, and the importance of diverse thinking in tackling the challenges presented by climate change. However, in the energy sector, the gender mix is still nowhere near representative of the underlying population. Unless we create an inclusive environment where women feel they belong and have the confidence to thrive, I fear that we are going to continue to miss out on some of the important contributions women can make to support energy transition. That’s why advancing Women in Energy is so important to me, and why I am so pleased to be an Equality Initiative Ambassador.
