EDF Energy hosted the inaugural Women in Energy Leadership Event on 9th September at their offices in Gloucester. This cross Energy Industry event was organised by Everywoman* and sponsored by EDF Energy.

Fiona Jackson, Head of Strategic Resourcing and Employer Branding in Corporate HR, said:

"EDF Energy is committed to achieving greater diversity.  Currently only 19% of the energy sector is female** and given the sector is  facing serious recruitment challenges, no company can afford to cut itself off from 50% of the talent pool. Therefore, attracting and retaining female talent is imperative for future business success."

More than 100 women from across the sector, including 20 from EDF Energy, attended the event, which was opened by David Akers, EDF Energy HR Director for Generation.  The day included a panel debate with four senior women in varying positions across the sector, workshops on career planning and personal development and a motivational speech on how to achieve your goals from a familiar face to EDF Energy, Paralympian Natasha Baker MBE.

The key note speech from Baroness Verma, Undersecretary of State for Energy and Climate change, highlighted the significant investment that is going to be needed in the energy sector in the future, showing that it was a great place for a long and fulfilling career.  She also showcased her "POWERful Women" initiative to encourage energy companies to have more women in leadership positions.
