| Due to the growing evidence that a gender balanced workforce improves
decisions, worker satisfaction, and most importantly, the bottom line,
increasing attention is being placed on the development of policies,
projects and programs that promote gender equality.
This webinar will highlight the steps your institution might take in
developing gender-informed energy infrastructure projects. It will feature
ground-breaking work advanced in West Africa and introduce tools to help
guide you in developing progressive policies and regulations. It will focus
on the different strategies to help close gender gaps in the energy sector
and create awareness and understanding of the role of women in the
workforce. An insider's view on how to get this done will be offered by
practitioners who have led the thinking and the action to spur the expansion
of a more inclusive clean energy sector.
Additionally, the webinar will offer information on the Global Women's
Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET) that was formed to empower women
working in sustainable energy in both developed and emerging/developing
countries at different career levels from both the public and private
