The Group aims to encourage and enable more women to enter the world of Energy Management and other environmental roles. What is the level of awareness and understanding of this very rewarding career amongst those facing future career choices, and indeed the barriers to this route for women
Being an energy manager may not seem like the most obvious career for many women. Often described as a highly technical and men overpopulated sector of energy management has been lacking the role models that young or career changing ladies could learn from and identify with.
Wendi Wheeler and Nicola Stopps have taken on a challenge of changing the perception of energy management being a men’s world and requiring engineering/technical education and skills. With Suki Gililland and Penelope Guarnay, they will giving out their insights and views on empowering women into energy management.
