POWERful Women is working towards a gender-balanced, diverse and inclusive UK energy sector for a net zero future.

Join us for our 2023 Annual Conference, taking place on Wednesday 15th November in London and online.


POWERful Women’s Annual Conference is the forum for UK energy companies – their leaders, managers and D&I professionals – to engage with peers, specialists and women working in the industry, to discuss the gender diversity and inclusion issues of the day and how to make better, faster progress.

This year’s topic follows on from the release in May of our annual statistics on women in UK energy, which revealed that while women are gradually progressing in the pipeline, roles at the top remain male-dominated. Women in middle management also continue to experience career barriers.

The conference will identify practical ways forward to accelerate the journey to a diverse, inclusive gender-balanced energy industry so that the sector has the talent needed for the energy transition.

We have already secured a fantastic line-up of speakers from government, energy C-suite, D&I professionals and business leaders from other sectors. We will also be running our popular interactive workshops during the afternoon, on a selection of D&I topics as chosen by our network. Plus, there will be the usual valuable networking opportunities over coffee, lunch and a drinks reception.

The conference will be a hybrid event: in person at One Birdcage Walk, Westminster, London SW1H 9JJ and streamed online. The morning plenary will be free and open to all. There is a charge of £85 per person for the expert D&I workshops in the afternoon, which will be delivered in person at the venue only.
