Daring Circles Sessions 2021

Description

This is the decade of climate delivery; of building back better, and greener, from Covid-19. Meeting our global climate and sustainability goals has never been so urgent or so clear an opportunity. But within disciplines that will drive the green recovery, like green entrepreneurship and STEM, women are vastly under-represented and under-supported. We risk missing out on a green transition that can drive a fairer and more equal society. In this session, we ask: how can we involve more women in the design and implementation of green solutions, especially in male-dominated industries such as energy and infrastructure?How can we ensure that women entrepreneurs creating sustainable businesses receive the same investment and support as men? And how can we guarantee that the voices of women leaders and experiences of women are integrated into all aspects of the green recovery? The session will explore the opportunity and imperative of a gendered approach to the green recovery.
