“Lights on women”, new database of women experts in energy

The European University Institute (EUI) in Florence has launched "Lights on women", a new database of women experts in the energy, climate and sustainability sectors.

The Energybase is a multi-side, matchmaking platform where the demand for diverse talent meets supply. Two user types (talents and searchers) will be matched through the database and will be able to connect and exchange. Its objectives:

  • Increase gender diversity in conferences, expert panels, research, media appearances, boards and hiring
  • Connect female professionals with global energy stakeholders to facilitate engagement and exchange
  • Ensure women’s contributions are acknowledged by showcasing their talent to increase their visibility, representation, and participation and boost their careers
  • Provide insights into the status of women’s participation in the energy sector and address the data gap.

More information on the database here.
