To further support the role of women in the sector, we have developed a Leaders’ Pledge. Through the Pledge, members of the clean energy industry can demonstrate and actively commit their support to the importance of championing and enabling women.
The Leaders' Pledge is a commitment to do three things:
Step up as an inclusive leader
I recognise that as a leader my organisation, others look to me for direction, not only in terms of business needs, but also my behaviour, ethics, and standards. I pledge to be an example for change, demonstrate inclusive behaviours and actions, and embed inclusive policies and procedures within the scope of my role.
Take the Panel Pledge
I recognise that, to be successful, our industry requires a diversity of authoritative, influential voices. As a sign of my commitment to actively encourage women’s voices, I hereby take the Panel Pledge and will not participate in forums or panels that do not embrace gender diversity.
Promote the achievements of women
I recognise that this is a change mission, and that an important way I can influence others to embrace the proven value and importance of gender diversity is to acknowledge the achievements of women in my network. You will see me do this by acknowledging achievements in the workplace, my use of social media, nominating talented women in my network for recognition and awards programs or any other means at my disposal. Importantly, I am actively seeking opportunities to acknowledge and encourage women’s achievements and participation.
