Paris Session Forum
The CIGRE Paris Session is held every even-numbered year and hosts the WiE Forum to promote the development of women in energy by sharing experiences, highlighting role models, and providing networking opportunities.
Women who are CIGRE members, and those engaged more widely in the industry, can meet with representatives of CIGRE’s governing bodies to share views on the importance of gender diversity and how this can be increased.
Women and men listen to a variety of inspirational speakers from around the world, with the opportunity to debate practical solutions for increasing and sustaining womens’ participation in the industry.
National Committees and WiE
CIGRE National Committees can play a key role in promoting women onto CIGRE work bodies and governance assemblies, so they are each encouraged to establish a WiE forum in order to realise the WiE vision.
