NEW – Explore the stories of some of Canada’s most inspiring climate leaders on Women in Energy Transformation’s new interactive digital platform

Women have been at the forefront of Canada’s energy system transformation for decades. As executives, educators, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and innovators dedicated to a sustainable future, they’re leading emissions reduction strategies, advocating for a just transition, inventing cutting-edge clean technology, and much more. 

The work of women in energy will be pivotal in fighting the greatest challenge of our time—the climate crisis. It’s time to hear their stories. The Pembina Institute and GLOBE Series have partnered to bring you the Women in Energy Transformation Series—a national dialogue that celebrates the women advancing Canada’s transition to a clean economy, and identifies opportunities for more women to get involved.
