The energy sector remains one of the least gender-diverse sectors and closing this gender gap will be vital as women are key drivers of innovative and inclusive solutions, as the International Energy Agency (IEA) informs. “Gender diversity in the energy sector is vital for driving more innovative and inclusive solutions for clean energy transitions all over the world.”
Women’s participation in the energy sector is below that of the broader economy and varies widely across energy sub-sectors. Despite making up 48% of the global labour force, women only account for 32% in renewables. These gender gaps in employment vary across different energy sub-sectors.
Given this context, five women of TRINITY’s team discuss gender diversity in the electricity sector, their professional experiences within this sector, obstacles, and barriers found, solutions to get more women into the energy sector, as well as, the gender balance within TRINITY project.
