Time: n/a
Location: FREE to attend two-day virtual event

Energy UK in partnership with Ofgem
Sponsored by Accenture

Energy UK’s second Inclusion, Equality & Diversity Conference - in partnership with Ofgem and sponsored by Accenture - was our most successful event to date. Attendees listened to insights from senior industry figures and experts, debating inclusion and diversity (I&D) and how we can drive positive change across the sector.

The two-day virtual conference was free to attend. It featured keynote speakers, panel discussions and ‘in conversation’ sessions as well as many interactive elements including polls, Q&A and a networking area and exhibition hall where attendees engaged with other delegates, speakers, partners and networks. 

The full programme covered a wide variety of cross-cutting issues including: 

  • Leadership: how to increase diversity at senior levels within the sector and the role of leaders in creating more diverse energy landscape,
  • Data: how improved data and monitoring can improve diversity and inclusion  
  • Net zero: how I&D is critical to meeting the net zero target
  • and Collaboration: how individuals, businesses and organisations can work together & share best practice. 

The two-day virtual conference discussed visibility and voice of under-represented groups, employee engagement and culture, flexible working and inclusion post-coronavirus and the power of networks, among other topics.

The event had an overarching theme of ‘from intention to action’ with practical tips, case studies and advice for individuals, organisations and businesses to take away. Check the programme below and sponsor our next event by contacting Sam Hollister (Sam.Hollister[at]energy-uk.org.uk).
