Back to top

Join Duke University’s Center for Energy, Development, and the Global Environment (EDGE) and Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability for an evening focused on Women in Energy*.

As the energy industry wrestles with mandates to decarbonize, geopolitical turmoil, energy justice considerations, and workforce transitions, companies across the sector are thinking about how to engage the best and brightest minds on these topics while also creating a workforce that is more diverse and inclusive. During this conversation, we’ll talk with industry professionals who have several different vantage points on the sector. What have their career journeys been like? What is exciting and challenging about working in the energy sector? What skills should students and young professionals cultivate in order to be successful? And, what can executives of all genders do to encourage professional development and mentoring in the industry?

Join us!

This event is open to guests of any gender, including Duke students, faculty, alumni, energy professionals, and students at other universities.
