Empowering Underrepresented Women
in the Energy Sector
Launching a EU funded project to reverse the underrepresentation of women in the energy sector.
What is EUWES
A groundbreaking initiative aimed at addressing the underrepresentation of women in the energy sector has commenced with the successful kick-off meeting of the project “Empowering Underrepresented Women in the Energy Sector”. This project, financed by the European Union, brings together four organizations dedicated to environmental and gender justice: DOOR, ESF, Focus and WECF. The kick-off meeting held in the city of Ljubljana last week served as a pivotal moment for project partners to come together and align their efforts towards the project objectives.
The energy sector presents a significant gender disparity, with women being greatly underrepresented. The EUWES project seeks to identify the current obstacles hindering women’s representation and to promote gender equality through the recommendation of inclusive policies and practices.
The project’s primary goal is to empower women and foster opportunities for them to actively participate and contribute in decision- making processes within the energy sector. This includes energy sector companies, energy-related committees, research and higher education organizations, and energy-established study programs.
EUWES addresses the underrepresentation of
women in the energy sector by:
Mapping and evaluating national gender policies.
Exchanging good practices and conducting training activities for women employed in the energy sector and female technical students.
Promoting advocacy campaigns and joint policy recommendations for tackling the gender gap.
The project brings together four organizations committed to transform the energy sector.
Empower 200 women and 400 female students
Create 4 national support groups
Promote policy solutions among 300 key stakeholders
