WHO ARE WE?

Launched by Baroness Verma and Laura Sandys in Summer 2014, with Ruth Cairnie, former EVP for Shell, joining as Industry chair in 2015, POWERful Women (PfW) is a professional initiative to advance gender diversity within the energy sector.

WHAT ARE OUR AIMS?

Our target is 40% of middle management, and 30% of executive board positions, to be female by 2030. We will deliver these in 3 ways:
– Campaigning and Reporting
– Supporting women in their careers
– Practical Support to increase gender diversity

WHY ARE WE NEEDED

In collaboration with PwC we published ‘Igniting Change’(2015) – Building the pipeline of female leaders in energy’. This eye-opening research highlighted that only 5% of executive board seats within the top UK-based energy companies were held by women, while 61% had no women on their board.
