The energy transition can only benefit from an increasingly equal engagement of women, and with this in mind we are showcasing portraits of remarkable women entrepreneurs in sustainable energy.

To balance the picture of the still predominant image of male leadership – and also male entrepreneurship, our portraits show a wide array of what is possible for female entrepreneurs in the sphere of sustainable energy, including – but not limited to –  innovative block-chain based solutions, financing and legal services.

The Energy Transition Role Models have lent their stories, image and words for all interested women to move from “You can’t be what you can’t see” to the exact opposite: giving female leadership visibility and thereby inspiring and encouraging others – especially young female students and graduates – to follow suit.

Watch the 17-part video series below and download the accompanying brochure which contains global, regional, and national resources for entrepreneurs as well as personal recommendations from the women entrepreneurs featured in this series.
