The Lights on Women Energy Expert List

The Energy Expert List will serve as a tool to foster gender diversity and inclusion in our activities and to inspire the wider energy sector to do the same.

An Inclusive Energy Transition

The deep transformation the energy sector is undergoing, and the challenges that come with it, make the push for diversity and inclusion all the more urgent. We must work together to improve women’s representation and participation in the fields and pursuits that will help us facilitate the global transition to climate neutrality, green growth, and the achievement of SDG 7.

Since 2017, the Florence School of Regulation (FSR) has been on a journey to improve gender diversity and inclusion in its activities and to inspire the wider energy sector to do the same. Through Lights on Women, the School has worked to amplify women’s expertise and contributions to advancing inclusive, just and resilient energy transitions. 

To mark the third anniversary of the FSR Lights on Women initiative, we are proud to share our newest project, The Energy Expert List.

The Lights on Women Energy Expert List

The Energy Expert List will serve as a tool to help us improve gender diversity and inclusion in the FSR’s Knowledge Hub and activities, allowing us to further facilitate knowledge exchange of new and unique perspectives, and unlock a diverse, global talent pool.

Diversity and inclusion are crucial to driving the scale of innovation needed for successful clean energy transitions. The Energy Expert List will enable the FSR to increase the opportunities it extends to women in energy and will use the list to address the information imbalance about the range of occupations, specializations and fields within the energy sector, which draws upon expertise and skills from diverse backgrounds.

Innovation comes from teamwork, from the play of ideas, from forgetting prejudices and standardised knowledge and taking a walk on the margins of what is known.

The Initiative

FSR’s Lights on Women initiative furthers the School’s mission of enhancing economically and socially inclusive energy policy and regulation. Founded in 2017, the Lights on Women takes meaningful steps towards shaping a more inclusive energy transition by empowering, promoting, and advocating for women in energy, climate and sustainability.

Since its launch, Lights on Women has grown into a global initiative fueled by passionate and ambitious women from the private sector, civil society, academia, governments and international organizations from more than 80 countries. Through capacity building (meet our recipients from the 2019 and 2020 annual Lights on Women scholarship), partnership building and the facilitation of knowledge sharing and collaboration, Lights on Women provides opportunities for women in energy while shining a light on their expertise and making their contributions visible to the energy community worldwide.
