Why do you believe in Africa’s energy sector?

What is your advice for women who say they struggle to make themselves heard in the workplace?
Undue assertion/ suppression is typically a sign of fear and insecurity. It can be helpful to see the resistance you are experiencing in this light. Be clear and centered and ask to be heard, until you are heard. Speak from your heart, you are entitled to your full expression.
How do you deal with women competing with each other in the workplace?
Be kind to those who are afraid and experience lack and limitation.
If you were your country's energy minister what would you do to make it easier for women to enter/stay/thrive in the energy sector?
Create an inclusive, collaborative culture – the rising tide lifts all boats. Give priority (through support, incentives and the like) to women in the sector.
