The utility industry lags behind other industries when it comes to promoting women into upper management roles. Breaking through the proverbial glass ceiling has proven difficult for women in the utility industry — but not impossible. The Power Conference to ADVANCE Women in Utilities is a four-day event spanning four weeks. The event will allow you and your team to learn and develop actionable ideas, strategies, and tactics to create a more sustainable career path towards upper management for women.
Starting on July 14th and continuing through each Tuesday until August 4th, the Power Conference to ADVANCE Women in Utilities focuses on opportunities for women in energy. Through peer-to-peer discussions, hear stories from women who have ascended to the industry’s highest jobs and discuss how you can advance your career. The keynote speakers will share their stories of how they overcame obstacles, learned how to present themselves, and focused on performing tasks and learning skills that they had zero experience with beforehand. You will learn how they stepped up to the challenge and navigated through a predominantly male industry and went to search for guidance through their journeys.
Through the course of the four sessions, attendees will discuss real-world problems. Other conferences like to focus on one or two different factors that will help you advance your career. However, these discussions leave out the added difficulties women face as they work towards their work goals. Hearing from women that have similar experiences and know the challenges you face going forward is an asset that should not be underestimated.
Some of the real-world scenarios covered during the conference include; how to focus on your career while you are going through a divorce or other significant life changes, juggling your career and your life outside of work, how to overcome insecurities, and more!
