Having led events for the acclaimed ‘She is Sustainable’ initiative, Green Alliance is launching a new project, in collaboration with the UK Energy Research Centre, to empower a group of early career women through a combination of network building, improving their awareness of opportunities and increasing their exposure and policy influence.
The initiative kicks off on the 25 June with a one day forum event aimed at collaboration, skills sharing and development for 20 women. Participants will have the chance to hear about how to maximise impact in policy influencing, discuss key challenges in the energy system with peers and experienced women in the energy sector, and share insights from their work. For full details, see the draft agenda
for the day.
Following this workshop, participants will receive support and resources to develop events and other interventions, to raise their influence on UK energy policy and strategy.
This project is in collaboration with the UK Energy Research Centre
and Rebecca Willis and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council
. It is a part of Green Alliance's Low Carbon Futures
Applications for this event are now closed.
If you have any questions, or if you could not attend this event but would like to get involved, please contact Caterina Brandmayr, policy analyst at Green Alliance firstname.lastname@example.org
