Women in Wind Program Announces 22 New Mentors for Class of 2022
Following our announcement of the 22 participants for the fourth cohort of the Women in Wind Global Leadership Program, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET) are delighted to announce the 22 mentors who will be joining the 2022 program. The jointly organised scheme aims to enhance gender diversity across the wind sector.
To deliver a just energy transition, the renewable energy sector must be a diverse, representative sector and the Women in Wind programme is delighted to welcome another intake for 2022, and to help them develop their skills and become integral figures in the renewable energy sector.
After launching this year’s program in April, the Women in Wind scheme received mentorship offers from senior female leaders across the industry. Our new group of amazing mentors were chosen for their track record of leadership, commitment to advancing the industry’s gender diversity and are recognised for their knowledge of the wind sector. GWEC and GWENET have also sought to match mentors to our participants, based on shared areas of interest and expertise.
