Diversifying the Energy Sector: EDI initiatives that succeed

Location: Coin Street Conference Centre, 108 Stamford Street London SE1 9NH – and online

Date/time: 26 March 2024, 10am-6pm

Join the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) and the Energy Institute (EI) for this free conference highlighting projects and initiatives that promote Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in energy – from academia to industry and beyond.

Through a combination of presentations, panel sessions and both structured and informal networking, you will discover what EDI initiatives work from people who have led the way, and learn how you and your organisation can make a difference – for example, by creating a more equitable, diverse and inclusive working environment and by listening to the needs of under-represented groups and communities.

You will have the opportunity to engage with researchers and EDI representatives about how their projects are having an impact in the real world, exchange ideas about career paths and progression, and discuss how EDI is already changing the energy sector for the better, as well as what needs to happen next.

The event will draw on the experience of projects supported by UKERC’s Whole Systems Networking Fund, as well as other EDI-linked projects and initiatives.

The event is aimed at people from across the energy/STEM sector, academia and beyond, and at all career stages – from those starting out to senior leaders. We welcome people who are new to the field of EDI, as well as experts and everyone in between.
