Gender matters in our global response to the COVID-19 crisis

Our collective ability to bounce back from the pandemic greatly depends on the inclusivity of our response. And there is a strong argument to be made for considering the current crisis as a pivot point for shaping more inclusive business practices that could make the whole industry more resilient to future shocks.

Why we need more women and girls in science to drive the energy transition

Today marks the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, established by the UN to raise awareness on the long-standing implicit biases and gender stereotypes faced by girls and women in STEM-related disciplines. Collaboration, human talent and innovation are determining factors for a successful energy transition, but recent studies demonstrate that the renewable energy industry fails to fully harness women’s skills and talent.

A greener, gender-equitable decade ahead

There is more urgency than ever to align political, financial, economic and social resources to create a greener world in the next 10 years. A chief concern will be how to harness the skills and talent needed for this mission – and in so doing, make the global energy transition more gender-equitable.

Best practices for gender diversity at industry events

On the occasion of COP25’s Gender Day, 14 wind and renewable energy associations have committed to uphold best practices for gender diversity at their future industry events. The Women in Wind Global Leadership Program published a guide of ‘Best Practices for Gender Diversity at Industry Events’ today to empower and showcase female leadership in the wind energy sector.

The energy transition must be gender-equitable

As the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition bring women working in the wind industry in emerging markets to Europe to encourage action on the Sustainable Development Goals, GWEC’s Joyce Lee explains why the energy transition will only be successful if women are able to fully participate.
