Equality and Diversity
Energy UK is proud of the work we do across the sector to drive forward progress to ensure a more diverse and inclusive energy sector.
Energy UK hosted its first ever ‘Inclusion and Diversity in Energy’ conference, in partnership with Accenture, on the 19th September 2019. To find out more click here.
Equality and Diversity Forum
In 2018 we launched an Equality and Diversity Forum, a cross-industry committee looking to share experiences from all attendees and external organisations in a bid to drive forward best practice in equality and diversity across the sector. The group is attended by organisations’ HR teams, internal network leads or equality and diversity leads.
Over the course of the Forum’s first year, we held a number of events and workshops and launched a new publication to highlight some of the positive steps being taken by the energy industry in equality, diversity and inclusion.
Pride in Energy
Energy UK’s Pride in Energy network is a diversity forum and network for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) members of the energy industry and their allies. The Pride in Energy network was created in response to a need for an organisation to address LGBT+ issues in the energy industry.
Energy UK and Pride in Energy will be hosting a series of meetings and events to further advance LGBT+ equality and diversity across the industry. Pride in Energy’s networking events will run in parallel with workshops whereby Energy UK’s members will have the opportunity to learn best practice and build it into their operations.
Celebrating women in energy
