Announcing the eight female mentors joining the 2019/2020 Women in Wind Global Leadership Program
Following our announcement of the eight selected participants for the inaugural Women in Wind program last week, we are so excited to share our eight mentors for this year.
After launching the program in April, we were grateful to receive many offers of support from senior female leaders across the industry. Ultimately, our mentors were chosen for their track record of leadership, commitment to pushing the needle on gender diversity and recognized knowledge of the wind sector. We also sought to make thoughtful and suitable matches to our participants, based on shared areas of interest and expertise.
A big thank you!
GWEC and Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET), as well as our Partners – Leading Partner, MHI Vestas, and Supporting Partners, Mainstream Renewable Power and GE Renewable Energy – express our warm gratitude to the eight women above for committing their time and energy to this program!
Under their guidance and leadership, we are confident that this year’s participants will go far in realizing their personal development and career goals.
