Mind the gap

    Description

    The energy sector globally is one of the most gender imbalanced sectors. Given that a lack of women at the table is not good for business or innovation, how can the energy industry narrow its gender gap? 

    “We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored,” says Sheryl Sandberg, the senior Facebook executive who encouraged women to “Lean In”. This would seem particularly true for the energy industry, which, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), “remains one of the most gender imbalanced sectors” with women making up substantially less than half of the workforce and continuing to be underrepresented in leadership positions. “Closing the gender gap is not only a moral and social imperative, but makes good sense for business,” says the agency. But if this is so important, why is change so slow?
