The way we generate and use energy is changing. What kind of leadership do we need to future-proof our sector? How do we actively include women in the energy transition to ensure that we can meet the challenges and maximise the opportunities that lie ahead? And how can aspiring women equip themselves to play a part, all the way up to the boardroom?

The energy industry is shifting. Rather than struggling to break the glass ceiling, our female thought leaders are driving the sector forward. With game-changing initiatives delivered by Jaz Rabadia’s (MBE) throughout her energy career, long-gone are the days of a male-dominated industry.

What’s more, the future looks bright. In 2019, more than half of the names on Edie’s ‘30 under 30’ list were female, delivering inspirational work for organisations including Formula E, Selfridges, Whitbread Group, Harrods, and Innocent Drinks.
