Women Energize Women

  • Portraits of female role models in the international energy context
  • Dissemination of information on the situation of women in the energy sector and how it can be improved
  • Cooperation with established and emerging women's networks, organisations and institutions.

Events

Launch Event: The Gender – Energy Nexus

Why gender equality is necessary for the energy transition?

Date: 22.11.2021 // 4pm – 6pm CET

Venue: Online - Event Link will be available after registration

Gender equality is a key determinant for advancing just energy transitions. Within these transformations, the greatest possible participation of all stakeholders is crucial for ownership and thus for national and international success. Women tend to be underrepresented in the energy sector, especially in decision-making or technical positions, while making half of the affected end users. This is particularly severe because gender disparities are barriers for reducing heavy costs on society in terms of reduced economic growth and slower poverty reduction. There is huge unleveraged potential and insight calling for more equitable participation as stakeholders in renewable energy policy making and implementation. Gender equality is a prerequisite and key driver for sustainable development and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
