Women In Utilities Awards 2024
27th June 2024
Grand Connaught Rooms, London.
Introducing the inaugural Women in Utilities Awards – brought to you by WUN and in association with utilities’ most trusted source of insight – Utility Week, this awards scheme is a tribute to the remarkable achievements of women in the utilities sector and the organisations and individuals that champion them.
Louise Wapshare, WUN director, said: “WUN is a community of women in utilities who connect, support, develop and encourage one another. Through the Women in Utilities Awards, in association with Utility Week, we want to showcase the achievements of women at all stages of their careers in utilities, as well as celebrating the individuals and organisations who provide support, development and opportunity.
“Whilst much has already been done to encourage diversity and equity in the utilities sector, we believe there is a long way to go! These awards will showcase and promote great practice so that we can keep building a sector where women stay and thrive.”
Utility Week portfolio director Ellen Bennett said: “With the gender gap still painfully evident in the boardrooms, offices and sites of utilities, there has never been a more important time to recognise and celebrate the many achievements of women who have made their career in utilities – not least to encourage new entrants and women in the early days of their careers.
“While great progress has been made, it’s eye opening that women make up only 26% of the workforce in energy and utilities. These awards provide a unique platform for the industry to showcase its commitment to gender diversity; celebrate the great women working in utilities today; and open the door for those who will come after them.”
