The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA Women in Energy Initiative (WIE), Georgetown University’s McCourt Energy & Environment Club and Women in Public Policy Initiative welcomes those interested in pursuing or thriving in an energy career to join us for an insightful event featuring accomplished women who will share their career paths, offer advice, and provide information on navigating a successful career in energy policy.

The event will conclude with a networking reception, facilitating connections between organizations seeking new talent and individuals passionate about pursuing a career in the energy sector.

The WIE initiative envisions a world with equal gender representation at every level within the energy sector. Our mission is to elevate women and enhance inclusion within the energy workforce by developing and sharing research, expanding entry into the sector, and supporting professionals.

To expand entry into the sector, WIE hosts events to provide opportunities to connect energy organizations recruiting new talent with those interested in pursuing a career. Our events also feature women who have thrived in a specific energy subsector. Join us to learn more about our work or contact us at  [email protected].
