Supporting a more inclusive, diverse and equitable energy sector

The free-to-attend Gastech Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Energy programme aims to support diversification in energy-related education, the energy labour market, and decision making to help tackle issues related to future capacity needs.

The feature programme facilitates frank discussions about the current and future make-up of the energy workforce. It examines how the energy transition could accelerate opportunities for minorities. It provides practical advice on how to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce. 


Why attend?


How industry practitioners are approaching the task of redressing gender and race-based imbalances in the workforce.


Insight into what a more diverse workforce can mean to your organisation.


How companies are tackling barriers to entry to improve representation in the industry.


How other sectors have transformed their workplaces with diversity and inclusion initiatives.
