If we want to see an inclusive energy and power sector, we need to work together to identify and implement the best initiatives to support women’s economic opportunities and create an enabling environment needed for women’s economic empowerment.
Women’s economic empowerment is crucial to sustainable poverty reduction. In order to achieve this private and public sector must work collaboratively to find ways to successfully integrate women into markets as employees, producers, distributors and consumers.
In our webinars we explore the ecosystem of energy stakeholders to orient women entrepreneurs on the mechanics of the sector so they can gain power sector business acumen.
Speakers at the webinar were:
Ms Bertha Dlamini

Ms Lomile Modisella
|Emfuleni Local Municipality: |
Ms Refilwe Mokgotsi
|Department of Mineral Resources and Energy||DMER: |
Ms Elizabeth Marabwa
|Technology company: OEM||Rockwell Automation: |
