“Women Energize Women”: Virtual Campaign Empowers Women in the Energy Sector

Informing, mobilising, inspiring, and connecting women around the world who work for the energy transition – that is the goal of the communication initiative “Women Energize Women”. The recently launched campaign (hashtag: #womenenergize) is an initiative of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE) within the scope of BMWK’s global project » Bilateral Energy Partnerships.

Until mid-August 2022, the Women Energize Women initiative build on various measures:

  • Monthly events (discussion panels, interviews, networking events) with fascinating and inspiring women working on the energy transition
  • Portraits of female role models in the international energy context
  • Dissemination of information on the situation of women in the energy sector and how it can be improved
  • Cooperation with established and emerging women's networks, organisations, and institutions

The communication initiative is carried out on its own social media channels. Visit the Women Energize Women’s social media channels on » Twitter, » Instagram, » LinkedIn, and » YouTube to support the empowerment of women in the energy sector and get updates on future events.

Implemented by GIZ on behalf of the BMWK, the Bilateral Energy Partnerships (EPs) bring together high-level intergovernmental dialogue with practical, goal-oriented project work. The EPs aim to enhance bilateral cooperation on the energy transition, improve energy security, promote climate protection, and mitigate global competition for energy resources.
