WIE Rise Together Campaign

1-featuredimage
This Women's Month we launched the WIE Rise Together campaign - a campaign that shines a spotlight on the women making a difference in the power and energy sector by highlighting the work they do as well as their achievements.  Despite making up 48% of the global labour force – women only account for 22% in the traditional energy sector. Enlit Africa recognises that closing the gender gap is vital to the success of the clean energy transition and hopes to raise awareness to help create a more gender-equal power sector in the future.
