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.
