Empowering, Connecting, and Increasing Visibility for Women in Sustainable Energy
Vienna, Austria (Apr. 16, 2019) — Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET), a non-profit membership association working with women energy experts globally, launched its newly created Women in Energy Expert Platform at the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue on 10th April 2019, which brought together more than 2000 experts and 60% women speakers.
The platform was also presented at the IEA C3E Workshop in Vienna on 11th April 2019, which focused on learning from international initiatives and Austrian best practices.
The brand new platform has been launched to connect and empower women working in sustainable energy in developing, emerging and industrialised countries, with the aim to encourage greater visibility, networking opportunities and professional connections between women.
“We are thrilled to debut our new platform for women working in sustainable energy, from junior to top management,” said Executive Director, Christine Lins. “We believe that this platform will promote the visibility of women in sustainable energy and encourage others to follow their example, ultimately contributing to gender balance and diversity. It will also become a valid tool for conference organisers looking for women speakers across the entire sustainable energy value chain.”
GWNET’s new platform allows users to create a free profile showcasing their accomplishments and includes premium features such as sharing content and engagement with other platform members.
Women working in sustainable energy are encouraged to explore the new platform and create their profile so that they can begin engaging with other professionals. The first 500 profiles created will receive the premium membership for free.
