Equal by 30

Equal by 30

The Natural Resources Canada-led Equal by 30 campaign, launched in May 2018 under the banner of the international Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), is an international framework that asks companies and governments to endorse principles, then take action in service of a common goal: Make gender equality central to the transition to a clean energy future by promoting equal pay, opportunity and leadership for women. Equal by 30 asks non-profit organizations like Women+Power to endorse principles, and take concrete actions to help close the gender gap. Through this campaign, leadership from across the energy sector is being brought together to galvanize action, and help all players – from private sector companies to governments at all levels – take action together.
