WHY POWERful WOMEN?

The energy sector is tackling a wide range of important issues – from keeping the lights on to helping consumers reduce energy waste and building a more sustainable low carbon future.

Because industry competitiveness relies on being able to attract and retain a diverse pool of talent capable of bringing fresh perspectives, PfW believes a much stronger female influence is needed at the top table. By bringing together a mix of industry, academic and political leaders – that span exploration, energy generation & supply, energy efficiency, technology, government and consumer issues – we work to support and encourage energy companies to appoint more women to senior roles as part of building stronger businesses and adapting to changing markets.

This includes matching industry leaders with professional women to provide guidance to help overcome challenges and build opportunities for greater female leadership in our energy sector.

OUR GOAL

40%

of energy company
middle management to
be female by 2030.

30%

of executive energy company
board members to
be female by 2030.
