Although women make up half of the workforce potential worldwide, they are typically under-represented in the power sector, particularly in technical and leadership roles such as utility management, planning, policy making, and engineering.
Women in Power System Transformation (Women in PST) – a joint initiative funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and implemented through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Consortium – aims to expand leadership and technical training opportunities for women in power system operations.
With a focus on gender diversity and equality, Women in PST brings together leading institutions to support students, researchers, and power sector practitioners in developing deeper knowledge and skills on cutting-edge technical topics related to variable renewable energy integration, power sector transformation, and advanced power system operations.
Led by Imperial College London and supported by power systems experts from around the world, Women in PST and G-PST have published in-depth university teaching materials for 5 cutting-edge power system technical topics including:
ASEAN Center for Energy, as a member of Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Consortium will join this webinar and share our work in ASEAN on gender equity in the energy sector.
Join us for this webinar to learn about the importance of a gender-diverse system operator workforce, technical training opportunities for women, regional gender equity program and resources, and how to access and use the free technical teaching materials.
