Male Allies in the Energy Sector

*This webinar does not offer AEE credits.

The energy sector has traditionally been male-dominated.  Women in developed and developing countries are still outnumbered in technical and supervisory positions in utilities and other energy sector agencies. Women attempting to enter the energy sector often face barriers such as gender stereotypes, bias, and a general lack of training, mentorship, and networking opportunities. When only one group dominates planning and decision-making, there is less innovation, productivity, and sustainability.

There are, however, men in the energy sector who see equity and inclusion as not just a nice-to-have but a ‘must-have.’ These men champion improvements to workplace policies, practices, and culture to elevate women and eliminate negative gender stereotypes and behaviors. The objective of this panel discussion is to highlight male champions for gender equality through their work in the energy sector across multiple countries. Panelists will share their personal experiences in promoting gender equality within the energy industry, the resulting business outcomes, and any challenges they encountered along the way.

Moderador:
Alaina Hawley, Energy Solutions Supervisor at Platte River Power Authority

Panelistas:
Matthew Mendis is a clean energy, environment, and finance expert with more than 35 years of experience in more than 45 developing countries. He currently serves as Managing Director of the energy team at Chemonics International, where he manages a team of experts and works across all the Regional Business Units to provide targeted support for energy sector projects and proposals.

Workforce Development and Sustainability: Are entry-level job seekers aligned with hiring firms and managers?

*This webinar offers .2 AEE credits for live attendance.

To many in the sustainability industry, entry-level employees’ career paths appear broad and diverse. A wide range of position types benefit from different and unique skill sets. To those graduating from high school, community college, or university, the picture may not be so clear – or so promising. This interactive presentation will review and summarize recent literature regarding workforce development initiatives in the sustainability industry to better understand the entry-level employment needs of the energy transition economy from the perspective of hiring entities and prospective employees. This review will benefit those on both sides of the hiring process, and aims to answer the following questions:

• Are aspiring sustainability job-seekers fully aware of the range of employment opportunities? If not, what are the information asymmetries?
• Are there specific job criteria that make sustainability jobs more or less attractive to job seekers, and to what degree are these criteria met in entry-level jobs?
• Can employers find and recruit job seekers with appropriate skill sets? If not, where are the most significant skill gaps, and how can they be closed?
• To what degree do cultural or generational factors impact hiring for sustainability positions?
• How does a career path in sustainability compare with other industries that job seekers may be pursuing, and what factors are most important in that comparison?
