Ed’s note: Diversity in the energy sector? We’ve got this covered…


On 7 September registration will open for the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2021, which will take place digitally from 25-29 October. It is always one of the most important yearly events in the energy sector, but this year particularly, we have one more reason to tune in.

On 25 October, as part of the EUSEW programme, the European Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simson, will officially launch the Equality platform for the energy sector.

According to a statement, “with this platform, the Commission aims to bring together energy stakeholders in their commitment towards equality, and offer a forum to discuss and exchange good practices for diverse and inclusive workplaces. This commitment relates to all aspects of equality and inclusion, such as those relating to gender, sex, ethnic origin, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion or belief”.
