A Forum dedicated
to CIGRE women in engineering
CIGRE Paris 2016 hosted the inaugural CIGRE Women in Engineering Forum. The 3 hour event was a great opportunity for women already active with CIGRE, and those engaged more widely within Power Engineering, to meet with each other and with representatives of CIGRE’s governing bodies and share views on the importance of greater gender diversity and how this can be achieved. An audience of women and men heard presentations from a variety of inspirational woman from around the world who already engaged in power engineering leading to a lively debate over practical actions that can be taken within CIGRE to move this topic forward. In particular the role of the CIGRE National Committees in promoting women onto CIGRE work bodies and governance assemblies was identified as a key focus area.
The number of attendees has reached 8 500
Breaking record of 3 290 delegates
