Developed in partnership with the Energy Institute and the Renewable Energy Association, role models featured in the new pack work with wind, solar, energy regulation and consultancy, in small start-ups as well as global corporations.
Our Young Women’s Board, who elected last month to re-name themselves the WISE Young Professionals Board, are inviting applications from men as well as women from member organisations to join the group. If you are working with colleagues under 30 who can help to keep us relevant to the next generation, please encourage them to put themselves forward.
