Women+Power is proud to announce that we have formally made our commitment to upholding the principles of the Equal by 30 Campaign designed to encourage public and private sector organizations to work towards equal pay, equal leadership, and equal opportunities for women in the clean energy sector by 2030. The Equal by 30 Campaign asks companies and governments 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. We are taking action together.
As a non-profit organization, Women+Power agrees to uphold the Public Sector high-level principles.
- We aim to lead by example by taking concrete steps to promote gender equality so that our lessons can serve as an example for others to follow.
- We aim to integrate a gender lens into all levels of our work, mainstreaming gender equality into our organizational culture and processes.
- We will set high standards for the recruitment, promotion, and participation of women, adopting more rigorous requirements where necessary.
- We will report regularly within our organizations and to the public so that progress is measured, visible, well-communicated, and we are fully accountable to our citizens.
“Our decision to commit to the Equal by 30 Campaign was an easy one since the underlying principles so closely align with Women+Power’s core objective to create a more diverse and inclusive power industry,” says Sharleen Gatcha, Founder & CEO. “We look forward to partnering with Equal by 30 to promote gender equality and will share information regarding the campaign.”
