The Clean Energy Council has established a Women in Renewables initiative that aims to achieve a better gender balance at all levels of the renewable energy industry. We will update this page with future Women in Renewable events.
2018 Women in Renewables Scholarship
Congratulations to Vanessa Ratard, the winner of the 2018 Women in Renewables Scholarship.
The scholarship will support Vanessa to undertake the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Foundations of Directorship course.
Our goal is to take Women in Renewables to the next level of action as we work together to make the renewables industry a leader in gender diversity in the work place.
To do this we have developed a Leaders’ Pledge through which members of the clean energy industry have the opportunity to support and actively demonstrate their commitment and belief in the proven value and importance of achieving gender diversity.
To learn more watch the video below or follow the link here to sign up.
Congratulations to those who have made the commitment to gender diversity and actively encouraging women’s voices in the clean energy industry by signing the Leaders’ Pledge.
As a part of the Pledge you have committed to the Panel Pledge and will not participate in forums or panels that do not embrace gender diversity. To aid you in this goal, we have developed a suggested response to single gender panel invitations specifically tailored for different situations.

In support of our commitment to the Women in Renewables Leaders' Pledge, the Clean Energy Council is compiling the industry's first Speakers Guide to promote gender diverse panels.
The Speakers Guide will be an online tool and printable PDF that showcases to event planners the quality and breadth of women in the sector, including their areas of expertise and location
Women in Renewables invites women in middle, senior and executive management in the renewable energy industry to submit their details to be included in the Speakers Guide.
