Agents of Change

Agents of Change is a one-day event focused on equipping women and men with the tools they need to address the challenges women and other marginalized groups face in the workplace. Women are under-represented in electricity and often face systemic barriers, but we have the power to change this disparity and transform our sector into a paragon of equity.

Agents of Change is designed to encourage interaction and collaboration, with a setting for stakeholders at all levels to reflect on their experiences and draw inspiration for the journey ahead. Supported by employers across Canada, this one-day event consists of a robust line-up of excellent speakers, leaders from the electricity and renewable energy industry with lived experiences, and participants who are committed to sharing their experiences and strategies to create an inclusive workplace.

Attendees include:

  • Executives
  • Human resources management
  • Company champions of diversity and inclusion
  • Those working in functional areas that typically see lower representation of women i.e. trades, engineering, technology.
  • Young employees eager to make a difference
  • Anyone with an interest in improving the electricity sector’s gender equity!
