The wind energy sector has taken a big step towards gender equality with the increasing incorporation of women in previously male-dominated jobs. According to a recent study, the number of women in the wind energy sector has increased by 25% in the last five years, and this trend is expected to continue in the future.
This change is largely due to an increased awareness of the importance of gender equality in the workplace and efforts to break down gender stereotypes in the sector. Many companies in the wind energy sector have implemented diversity and inclusion policies and programmes, and have made a conscious effort to hire more women for traditionally male jobs.
In addition, women are also being supported to develop the skills needed for these jobs. This includes specific training and career development programmes for women, as well as mentors and female leaders in the sector.
The addition of women not only contributes to gender equality in the workplace, but also improves diversity of perspective and performance in the sector and we are proud to say that in recent months we have added two maintenance technicians to our team.
In conclusion, the wind energy sector is making significant strides and this trend is expected to continue in the future, which is a great step towards gender equality in the workplace.
