Closing the gender gap in the energy sector

As we start a new decade, we invite you to openly discuss how to close the energy sector gender gap.

In 2018, EY suggested that the global women representation in the energy sector workforce was only 20%. However, there is a shift and growing consensus towards the necessity of women economic empowerment to drive growth and sustainability.

Under the theme of the future workforce of women in power, this live broadcast will discuss what practical programmes and policies can be built to provide empowerment for women and the advances towards mentorship to foster leadership opportunities.
