March 17, 2021Women’s History Month 2021

March is Women’s History Month, and also includes International Women’s Day. At EHRC, we wanted to celebrate the individual women and organizations that are committed to fostering places where women can thrive in the electricity sector.

This year on International Women’s Day we welcomed two milestones in our Leadership Accord on Gender Diversity. The African Women in Energy Development Initiative became our first international advocate, and the City of Ottawa became a signatory, making them our 100th participant!

Leading up to this momentous day, we took some time to check in with some women in diverse fields across the sector in our signatory companies. We asked them, what does it mean to you to be a woman working in the electricity sector in 2021?
