#ThrowbackThursday to last weeks #WomenInWind Study Tour and the inspiring carbon-neutral @bloombergnef building in #London. Have you read about why the #energytransition must be gender equitable? Check out the blog in our Bio and read a piece by Joyce Lee, GWEC's Operations and Policy Director. ⠀ ⠀ "The traditional corporate pyramid model is prone to zero-sum thinking when it comes to diversity.
