WOMEN IN ENERGY SEMINAR

 

Along with our proud partner African Women In Energy & Power , this seminar has been designed to highlight the opportunities for women in the energy industry. 

 

Increasing women participation, driving policy and opportunity, as well as how closing the gap for
women-owned SMEs can drive growth in Africa, are just some of the hard-hitting topics being addressed.

THIS WILL BE THE LARGEST-EVER REPRESENTATION OF WOMEN IN ENERGY AT A WORLD-CLASS AFRICAN EVENT!

This platform will attract all professionals and decision makers who are empowering women
in the energy sector as well as promoting entrepreneurship and gender balance.
