What is the CAREC Women in Energy Summit?

This inaugural Women in Energy Summit will officially launch the CAREC Women in Energy Program following the commitment made by the Energy Ministers of the CAREC countries to achieve gender equality in the regional energy sector.

The CAREC Women-in-Energy Program is the first targeted initiative to advance women in the energy sector in wider Central Asia. The goal is to make the principles of EQUAL by 2030 the modus operandi in the region’s energy industry, making equal opportunity, equal pay, and equal leadership the new standard by 2030.

Who should attend:

  • Government, regulators, policy makers
  • Male and female energy professionals from Central Asia and beyond
  • Regional investors, equipment manufacturers, project developers, suppliers
  • Development banks, private banks, investment funds, insurers
  • Regional opinion makers and think tanks
  • Academics
  • Other stakeholders

Women must come out of the shadows in the energy sector

The emerging priorities on both renewable energy and energy efficiency opens new opportunities in the industry to diversify the sector’s workforce. The rise of a wide spectrum of new jobs in response to the greening of energy offers a timely window of opportunity to fundamentally change the current bias in the sector alongside enabling more women to rise to leadership positions in the traditional energy business.
