The Association of Women in the Energy Sector in Kosovo (AWESK) has announced that, supported by the office of the President of Kosovo, it is organizing for the first time not only in Kosovo but also in the region the Conference “Women & Energy” with the theme “Together in GE (Women in Energy) ) we can break the glass ceiling”.
In the announcement, the date when the event will take place, 22.09.2022, is also shared.
In this way, AWESK has invited international companies, institutions and programs to become sponsors of the event.
Important to note, AWESK with their work and dedication is responding directly to the challenges women face, including under-representation in professional and academic settings, and the lack of institutional support to create and inclusive energy sector.
Otherwise, last month the association had published the report “Gender diversity in the energy sector in Kosovo”, with support from GIZ.
In that publication, the underrepresentation of women in Kosovo’s energy sector was highlighted, as the report provided specific data about the personnel and the level of representation of women for each operator, institution and relative actor in the energy sector.
