An energy transition will never be just unless the inequalities embedded in the energy system are identified and addressed. This should start with recognizing that women are disproportionally impacted by issues like energy poverty and climate change, but also by ensuring that women and men are equally represented at the decision-making table.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Endorsing gender-responsive procurement, intended as the inclusion of the impact on gender equality and women’s empowerment in its procedures for the procurement of services and works. While maintaining rigorous quality standards, procurement policies will make the utmost use of the flexibility offered by the applicable procurement law, with the aim to achieve gender equality by systematically insisting on women’s workforce participation in stipulating technical specifications, selection criteria and contractual terms.
Raising awareness on the importance of collecting gender-disaggregated data in the energy sector to inform energy analysis and develop appropriate, evidence-based responses, policies and legislation. To facilitate future gender-disaggregated data collection, the organization will produce specific guidelines explaining why data are essential to evaluate and track the pivotal role of women, also as prosumers, in the energy sector.
