Catherine Edwards, Emma Bill, Naomi Potter, Ruth Young and Vicky Merrison virtually came together to record a special podcast in celebration of International Women’s Day 2021. We openly discuss our experiences as women in energy and the working world, from school and university to progressing in our careers.
We talk about how important confidence is to us and how creating a culture within a company that promotes inclusivity and equality is incredibly important for lasting change. We acknowledge the importance of having female role models in the energy industry and leadership roles, so we know that those career paths are available and achievable.
We also look at what needs to happen in the future to encourage more girls to consider a career in energy and how we change implicit biases.
Below is a 30-second extract from our full podcast.
