Mainstreaming Gender in Renewable Energy Webinar 2020
August 20th, 2020
3:00pm - 5:00pm
About the Event
Women in Renewables presents ‘Mainstreaming Gender in Renewable Energy’, a webinar exploring the latest international research into women’s participation in the renewable energy sector, how it compares to Australia and the need to drive gender as a key consideration across all aspects of business decision-making. Changing the landscape and recognising the value diversity brings is an increasing focus for both men and women across the industry.
The keynote address will be delivered by Celia García-Baños, Associate Programme Officer at the International Renewable Energy Agency and co-author of A Gender Perspective 2019, before opening up to a panel discussion.
This informative webinar will look at some of the challenges unique to the Australian context and explore opportunities and solutions to overcome a lack of diversity across the industry. The panel will bring real-world experience in discussing the challenges women face when entering traditionally male-dominated areas of renewable energy and discuss ways to encourage greater female participation, especially in the trades.
