Description: The 2020 REN21 Academy was a 3-day immersive virtual lab, creating an informal collaborative space where participants explored strategies to make the structural shift to a renewables-based energy system.
GWNET President, Irene-Giner Reichl, took part in two lead up events to the academy, including a Lean Coffee networking session on the 10th of November and Young Professionals Day on the 22nd of November.
Lean Coffee was a virtual networking session in a fun and dynamic environment. In this space, Irene led a small group of attendees in discussions around gender inclusivity.
Additionally, the Young Professionals Day involved Irene participating in the Careers Chat session as a professional/advisor, sharing her experiences with young people from all over the world, and motivating them to tackle current renewable energy challenges and strive to become future leaders.
