To support this goal, the CEC has established an annual scholarship to support a female leader in the renewable energy industry to undertake the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Foundations of Directorship course.
Through the Foundations of Directorship scholarship, the Women in Renewables program aims to empower more women to aspire to leadership roles and help increase the pool of potential candidates for board roles within the clean energy sector.
It is for the senior female visionaries in CEC member companies, Approved Solar Retailers and Accredited Installers wanting to take the next step in their careers. For full course details visit the AICD website.
