Last week, our General Manager Christine had the incredible opportunity to contribute as a panel speaker at the Women in Energy discussion during the State Electricity Commission (SEC) Energy Jobs and Skills Forum. It was an enlightening and empowering experience!

At our organization, we firmly believe in the power of renewable energy to drive down power bills, reduce emissions, and most importantly, create new job opportunities. The SEC paves the way for up to 59,000 jobs in the renewable energy sector, with at least 6,000 dedicated to apprentices and trainees. This presents a remarkable chance for growth and development within the industry.

We recognize the significance of diversity and inclusion in the renewables sector. As we strive to ensure a sustainable future, it is crucial that our workforce accurately reflects our community. Our goal is to provide equal opportunities for everyone, ensuring that each individual has a fair chance to contribute to the transition.

Christine sat alongside Minister for Energy Lily D’Ambrosio MP, Minister for Women Natalie Hutchins MP, and industry colleagues. Together, we explored strategies and initiatives to boost women’s participation in the energy industry. It was a remarkable collaboration, emphasizing the importance of women’s role in achieving our ambitious target of 95 percent renewable energy generation by 2035.

We firmly believe that workers, including women, are the driving force behind the transition to renewable energy. By fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce, we can harness the collective power and talent needed to achieve our renewable energy goals.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the SEC, Minister D’Ambrosio, Minister Hutchins, and all the inspiring individuals who participated in the Women in Energy discussion. Together, we are shaping a brighter, more sustainable future for all.
