About Women in Wind Global Leadership Program
The program is designed to accelerate the careers of women in the wind industry, support their pathway to leadership positions, and foster a global network of mentorship, knowledge-sharing, and empowerment.
GWEC and GWNET call on other stakeholders in the renewables industry to recognize the importance of equal participation in the fight against climate change and the promotion of sustainable development.
In uplifting the next generation of stewards for a sustainable energy system, we affirm that our efforts are in alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goal 5 (achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls) and UN Sustainable Development Goal 7 (Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all).
