Gender diversity drives innovation, opens new pathways for technology deployment, brings valuable perspectives to social and economic development and provides a richer pool of talent for key and emerging industries. In the landscape of global issues requiring strong leadership and a skilled workforce, few areas are as critical as the transition to a sustainable energy system. Yet, as documented in IRENA’s January 2019 report “Renewable Energy: a Gender Perspective,” the renewables industry continues to be male-dominated.

In order to advance the role of women as agents of change in society and promote best practices within the wind industry, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) is teaming up with the Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET) to launch the Women in Wind Global Leadership Program. The program is designed to accelerate the careers of women in the wind industry, support their pathway to leadership positions and foster a global network of mentorship, knowledge-sharing and empowerment.

    Hi,
    My name is Tammy Din I currently work in as a maintenance technician. I fix machinery amongst other things at kerry ingredients. I have a range of qualifications. A completed apprenticeship and an nvq in Engineering. I also have a level 2 in tig welding and a city and guilds in confined space. I would love to be able to work on the wind farms as a tech. I am wondering what qualifications would be needed to join your team?
    Kind regards

    Tammy
