Lights on Women
In 2017, the Florence School of Regulation (FSR) Energy launched the Lights on Women initiative (LoW) to advance economically and socially-inclusive energy policy and regulation.
Through the years, the project has managed to:
- Offer scholarships for specialised training to women in energy, climate, and sustainability
- Advocate for women in the sector and boost their visibility, representation, and careers via our blog
- Create opportunities and space for women to meet, and exchange views during our dedicated panels and online events
Our newly launched Lights on Women platform includes a blog, career development opportunities and a database for women in energy, sustainability and climate.
1. The Lights on Women’s blog
The blog features research by female energy experts and interviews with them with the scope of shedding light on their identities and careers.
2. The Lights on Women scholarship
As a school, the values that inspire us are to educate and upskill female energy professionals. Since 2017, we have organised five scholarships: 5 Lights on Women Scholarships, and one Women in LAC scholarship (in partnership with IDB Inter-American Development Bank) for a total of 50 free seats awarded in our training courses.
Our scholarship recipients become representatives of the Lights on Women initiative and actively participate in its betterment.
3. The Energybase
The Energybase is a database for women professionals in the energy, sustainability, and climate sectors. With the Energybase, we aim to break down barriers for women in accessing the energy, climate and sustainability sectors, incentivise innovative approaches to hiring policies and ultimately develop inclusive and diverse working environments within these fields.
