Women in Energy Symposium (Nov 06-08)

Women are traditionally underrepresented in the energy industry, with an extreme disparity continuing into both leadership and trade positions. This program addresses some of the opportunities and challenges that women face working in the energy industry and advocates for workplace inclusion and teamwork. Open to both women and men, WEI members will join together for leadership training, education, networking and mentorship. Sessions include executive panels with both males and females, and roundtable discussions on internal support for inclusion. With a growing emphasis on cross-functional teams and diverse skill sets, this program will support utility directives to build a cohesive workforce.
