There is a lack of women in the energy sector worldwide. Is this also the case in South Africa?
Indeed. Women are vastly under-represented when it comes to senior levels of business in the energy sector. Research shows that only 5% of board executives and 16% of board members of the top 200 utilities worldwide are women. I have been involved in this industry for several years now and am often the only woman or the only woman of colour in a room.
