As the energy sector continues to be one of the foremost pillars of economic development and due to the rising demands for developing Human Resources to actively foster and nurture this sector and support its growth, tapping into the female work force is not just a need of the hour, but one of the corner stones to ensure its continued growth.
Under the patronage of the Ministry of Energy South Africa, the Women in Energy Africa Forum is a platform for women involved in the energy space to learn from international women leaders, connect with one another, share industry knowledge, and ultimately promote mentorship and facilitate increased participation of women in the energy sector.
This innovative and unique event, conceptualized by IDEANOMICS Global, will take place at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa on the 1st October 2013.
