The Clean Energy Council has compiled the industry's first online Speakers Guide as part of its Women in Renewables program to promote gender diverse panels, providing a real-time, dynamic, online resource for event organisers and media.
Women currently make up around 32 per cent of the renewable energy workforce worldwide, according to a 2019 survey and analysis by the International Energy Agency.
Clean Energy Council Chair, and Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Hydro, Rachel Watson said that there needs to be a conscious effort from across the renewable energy sector to empower women.
"Skills development, knowledge-sharing and mentorship, play an essential part in improving the representation of women. The Clean Energy Council Speakers Guide ensures that women's experience and perspectives can be shared, improving the quality of the conversation.
"Advancing equality and diversity in the energy sector is a compelling proposition. A more inclusive and diverse renewable energy sector will go a long way to progressing the clean energy transition," said Watson.
The Women in Renewables Speakers Guide features the profiles of over 150 women with a broad range of experience, including that of Clenergy Australia Operations Manager, Aurore Pont who saw the Guide as an opportunity to put her knowledge and skills forward within the clean energy industry.
"The Women in Renewables Speakers Guide showcases the many talented women working in the clean energy industry, and this visibility is critical for career development. By being included in the Guide, you get the chance to participate actively to the current conversations and be recognised as a leader in your field, which in turn may result in more opportunities to create bigger and bolder achievements," said Pont.
