Powering Renewables: Women in Solar Energy II
The International Solar Energy Society envisions a world with 100% renewable energy for everyone used wisely and efficiently and one of the biggest steps towards achieving this goal is the empowerment of women working in solar research, development and the solar industries.
As the largest international solar organization worldwide, ISES is committed to equality and sees it as one of the integral pillars to a successful energy transition. Women have held leading positions within ISES, as presidents, board members and team members - working as engineers, researches, developers they have shaped the ISES profile and together with their colleagues contributed to the success of ISES on a global scale.
This technical and engaging webinar on women in solar energy is following up the introduction of the IRENA study on gender and renewables in our webinar in November 2018 as the second installment in this series. In this webinar, the results of this important study will be presented and discussed and speakers from IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) GWNET (Global Women's Network for the Energy Transition) and REDMEREE (Red Mujeres en Energía Renovalbe y Efficiencia Energética) will join to add important perspectives from women in the renewables all around the world.
The aim of this webinar is to highlight the perspective of women working in solar energy, their professional as well as personal experience, their achievements and to demonstrate that a successful energy transformation can only be achieved when renewables become powered by equality!
The webinar is free for all to attend and the recording of the webinar as well as the webinar presentations will be publicly accessible for a few days after the webinar.
