March 28, 2022 – March 28, 2022
03:00 pm – 05:00 pm
The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE)

In order to achieve the global energy transition, all talents are needed. However, structural and economic barriers still exist for women to enter the sector and to occupy decision making positions.

One of many powerful tools to create more gender equality in the energy sector is gender mainstreaming. Numerous different concepts and attempts of women empowerment are already successfully deployed in different parts of the world, especially in energy partnership countries.

This event is organized in collaboration with Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET) and Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena) and will take place as an Official Side Event of the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, which is a leading international forum for key stakeholders of the energy sector. Our event seeks to bring together representatives from various countries to shed light on the different approaches to gender mainstreaming and to identify common solutions, possible synergies and further needed action.
