Networking event

Women in Hydropower: Networking Lunch

12:30 – 14:00

Gender diversity drives innovation, opens new pathways for technology deployment, brings fresh perspectives to the development of societies and attracts and retains a richer pool of talent.

This networking event, organised in partnership with the Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET), is the first in a series to empower female professionals in the hydropower industry. It will discuss drivers in addressing gender imbalances in the hydropower sector and promoting gender sensitive action around the energy transition to strengthen the entire industry.
