Energy survey: The gender imperative

Embracing (gender) diversity is not just a moral imperative, it makes business sense: gender and culturally diverse organisations are proven to perform better on every measure of profitability. 

In the green economy, we are seeing a (renewable) energy revolution. As the energy sector evolves, competitiveness is key. This is highly reliant on attracting and retaining diversity in talent and perspective.

Women bring with them an important benefit: quite simply, a different world view. Imagine the untapped potential of another half of the population as input to new insights, innovations and solutions!   

GreenCape is hosting a panel discussion and networking event on diversity in the energy sector. Join the conversation on Thursday, 14 March 2019 at the GreenCape office in Cape Town, South Africa. The event will address the growing business case for gender empowerment in South Africa’s energy sector.

In the meantime, the organisation invites you to complete a short survey.

The survey results will be presented at the networking event and it is anticipated that the results will generate some much-needed dialogue.

All players in this sector, irrespective of gender, are welcome and urged to attend, including but not limited to: installers, suppliers, energy services companies, and representatives from government and academic institutions.  

From this event, the organisation hopes to gain a better understanding of where to focus GreenCape’s energy in making this sector more diverse and inclusive. 

The event will be an interactive one, geared towards networking and information sharing. For this reason, the agenda is tailored for information sharing and discussion.

Drinks and canapés will be served.
