As the largest international solar organization worldwide, ISES is committed to equality and sees it as one of the integral pillars to a successful energy transition. Women have held leading positions within ISES, as presidents, board members and team members – working as engineers, researchers, developers they have shaped the ISES profile and together with their colleagues contributed to the success of ISES on a global scale.
This technical and engaging webinar on women in solar energy will be the first of a two-part series on this topic ISES. In the October webinar, the invited speakers will talk about their careers, personal experiences working in solar energy, running solar businesses and founding new networks. This webinar will also introduce the Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition and the IRENA Gender Study collecting data on gender and renewable energy:
The objective of the survey is to gather quantitative and qualitative insights on the current status of women’s participation in the renewable energy sector, existing challenges and potential solutions to improve gender diversity. The findings from the survey will contribute to addressing the data and knowledge gap on gender in renewable energy, and inform policy-making to ensure that the energy transition is inclusive and benefits from a wider pool of talent. The findings will be integrated into the forthcoming IRENA report on Gender and Renewable Energy.
