For identity, For diversity & For equality. —— It is more than a responsibility to do more for the rights and interests of female employees, which requires more advanced regulation, flexibility and paid as well. The renewable energy industry needs to engage and retain more women – and promote them. Their leadership and contributions will be crucial to ensuring that the energy systems of the future address the needs of modern societies and leave no one behind.
