Applications now open: Empowering women as managers in the renewable energy sector
Applications are now open for a new Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) initiative to empower women as managers in the renewable energy sector.
Through an ambitious, comprehensive and targeted capacity-building and mentoring program, this project supports the accelerated career advancement of women in APEC economies who work in the field of renewable energy. It intends to develop their full personal potential and increase their confidence and skills to become effective employees, decision makers, entrepreneurs and leaders in the public or private sector. Specifically, Empowering Women as Managers in the Renewable Energy Sector seeks to support women’s career development by:
- increasing their knowledge of renewable energy technologies, markets and policy;
- enabling them to develop sound, comprehensive and convincing business plans; and
- facilitating professional exchanges and peer-to-peer mentoring.
The program combines online training, a mentoring program and face-to-face training allowing participants the flexibility to access the training materials at a pace and time that is convenient to them. Participation in all online and in-person costs will be covered by the project.
Women interested in joining the program are requested to apply through RENAC’s website using this link on or before 00:00 CET, 27th May 2018.
