Event description

Description

Join the Duke University Energy Initiative and the Center for Energy, Development, and the Global Environment (EDGE) at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business for an evening focused on Women in Energy.

Across the energy sector, women make up less than 30% of the workforce. But that is changing as more young women enter the sector and as the industry makes a concentrated effort to increase gender diversity. What's it like to be a woman working in energy? What can both male and female executives do to encourage more diversity in the sector? And what skills make any young professional well-prepared for a career in energy?

Join us for a networking reception and panel discussion to discuss these topics and more. Both men and women are welcome to attend!

Open to Duke University students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Alumnae Panelists:

  • Jessica Allen, Project Engineer, Duke Energy

  • Chelsea Barnes, Director of Policy Services, EQ Research

  • Mirka della Cava, Senior Program Manager and Team Lead, Colorado Energy Office

  • Marina Yakhnis, Renewable Energy Specialist, RTI International
