Women in Renewable Energy Committee in Egypt

Question

How does this project fit within your overall sustainability goals and ambitions?

Answer Infinity

The Women in Renewable Energy Committee tackled the social pillars of sustainability not only by benefiting the external community but also it helped raise awareness about females in renewable energy to our employees. It also resulted in a strong bond between women in our company.

Question

Provide details on how your project has benefitted the sustainability realm as well as your organisation, your team & your stakeholders if relevant.

Answer Infinity

Starting a women in renewable energy committee targeted the social pillar since it encourages women to be engineers and achieve a better understanding of the field and to set an example to future female engineers. It also caused the female employees to be more engaged and developed their communication skills with one another and caused them to express creative ideas for a cause they are interested about. For example, a video was filmed by our female engineers (4 females) in our 1 MW site, in which they shared their experience and the obstacles they faced when choosing their career and how they overcome them. This video was shared with every department in the company to help raise awareness within the employees and is planned to be shared through social media as well on our online platforms.
