Women in wind energy

Published onAugust 21, 2020

The Women in Wind Global Leadership Program, a joint initiative of the Global Wind Energy Council and the Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition, has released a guide on Best Practices for Gender Diversity in Talent Recruitment as a resource to advance gender equality in the wind industry. The guide aims to support employers in clean energy in adopting a diversity lens to strengthen their hiring practices, and ultimately increase the dynamism and competitiveness of their workforce. As more renewable energy jobs will be created in the coming years on the path to a green recovery from the COVID-19 crisis, gender diversity must be a priority to ensure a just recovery that attracts top talent, innovation and skills to drive the global energy transition. Women represent only 21 per cent of the global wind workforce and only 8 per cent of its senior management, according to a 2020 report by IRENA and the Women in Wind Global Leadership Program.
