Empowering the Future: How the Nordics are Paving the Way Towards a Just and Sustainable Energy Transition

This forum delves into the enduring impact of increased female participation in the energy sector, the connection between diverse leadership and energy sector innovation, and the influence of women in leadership roles on corporate culture, decision-making, and overall business performance. The Nordics, recognized for innovation in renewable energy and gender equality, play a leadership role in promoting women's engagement in the energy industry. In a world facing a climate crisis with disproportionate effects on women, empowering and advancing women is crucial for climate mitigation and adaptation.
