|| The International Solar Energy Society envisions a world with 100% renewable energy for everyone used wisely and efficiently and one of the biggest steps towards achieving this goal is the empowerment of women working in solar research, development and the solar industries.
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, researches, 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 November 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 results of this survey together with a new set of speakers will follow up as the second installment of this webinar topic in early 2019.
The aim of this webinar is to highlight the perspective of women working in solar energy, their professional as well as personal experience, their achievements and to demonstrate that a successful energy transformation can only be achieved when renewables become powered by equality.
