The Energy Leaders’ Coalition comprises eight of the leading CEOs from the UK’s energy sector who are making a public declaration to improve gender diversity in their companies and in the sector as a whole. Each recognises that there is a rich pool of talented women in the sector who can make a significant contribution to the growth of their business and to the transformation of the UK’s energy sector to meet the challenges of the coming decades.

‘Positive Steps Towards Gender Balance’ Energy Leaders’ Coalition First Anniversary Report
16 May 2019
In May 2019, the leaders of eight of the UK’s top energy companies – competitors who between them represent 56,000 employees – came together to address an issue that matters to them: gender balance. Why? Because the energy sector is facing an unprecedented transformation – into a smarter, more flexible, low carbon energy system with new customer expectations – and these business leaders no longer want to miss out on a significant pool of female talent and expertise.
So what has the Energy Leaders’ Coalition achieved in its first year? This anniversary report sets out the research the companies have done over the past 12 months to identify barriers to gender balance and some of the initiatives they are already implementing internally to feed the pipeline of future female energy leaders. It also sets out what their plans are for year two and the positive steps they are committed to taking towards better gender balance.
