On 19 May 2021, POWERful Women (PfW) will host a virtual event for an audience of industry professionals where they will publish our Annual ‘State of the Nation’ on gender diversity at the top of the UK energy sector.
- How diverse are the boards of UK energy companies in 2021?
- How much progress have we made in the past year on the representation of women at the top table and in the leadership pipeline?
- What more can be done by government, regulators and companies to drive change, and what is already being done?
All these questions and more will be answered at the launch of their annual gender diversity statistics, an important part of their campaigning and reporting work to provide transparency and support companies, such as the Energy Leaders’ Coalition, in setting clear expectations on progress.
In partnership with PwC, updated data is currently being gathered on the number of women on boards, in executive director roles and in the pipeline to these leadership positions in the top companies in the UK energy sector, focussing on the significant employers.
Government and the regulators have the power to create an expectation of industry and in supply chains. Hear what Minister Trevelyan and the regulators have to say on the latest statistics, and how and why we should continue to shift the dial.
The Event is open to anyone at no charge
Of the event, speaker The Rt Hon Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, Energy Minister, says:
“I am passionate about attracting and retaining the talent the UK needs to successfully transition to clean, green energy and tackle climate change, so I’m looking forward to seeing what progress we’ve made in 2021 on improving the representation of women in the UK’s energy sector.”
