Women Leading the Energy Transition: Our Bright Future
This publication brings together the career paths, perspectives and goals of seven women leaders in energy transition.
We have many remarkable leaders in energy doing great things here in Australia – especially in energy transition and those working hard and innovatively to tackle climate change. And many are women. We wanted to explore why this is, the unique and valuable skillsets and insights they bring and – most of all – how we can continue to inspire the next generations of women to build on this bright decarbonised future.
Through speaking to these wonderful women, there have been different career paths taken. But there have also been common themes:
- Taking a seemingly unconventional role.
- Being brave.
- Saying yes to an opportunity that came from leftfield.
- Valuing the ideas of others.
- Sharing stories.
- The power of collaboration.
- Seeking the unique perspectives of women and people with diverse backgrounds.
It is no coincidence that so many women are doing remarkable things in energy transition. It’s because of these diverse perspectives, inclusive mindsets and different lenses that we are seeing great successes in this sector.
While we hope people from all walks of life, all parts of the world and from different training feel inspired to explore a career contributing to the energy transition, we also hope for businesses to see the ideas and innovations shared.
