30 Nov WUN Year In
A year ago, Angela Peart Director of Utility People started the Women’s Utilities Network because she recognised there was a lack of support for women already in the energy and utilities industry. The Industry itself is already making headway to support the government’s 30/30 target – which is about ensuring 30% of board members are women by 2030 – and that’s a brilliant objective, but not everybody wants to be a board member.
So WUN was set up to support the women that are already in the industry to give those women the tools, support and encouragement they need to develop their skills and career and stay working within the industry.
A year on, we’ve launched a website, a mentoring scheme, a job’s section, training schemes and three amazing networking events have already taken place. We are so pleased this is helping women in our Industry and know that our second year is going to be even more successful. Thank you to all our sponsors, founders and supporters of WUN – without you, we would not be where we are right now. Roll on 2018 we are WUN to watch that’s for sure!
