Why diversity is key to delivering a successful net zero

Presented by

Miriam Atkin, Gemserv and Rubina Singh, Centrica

About this talk

Did you know that only 5% of executive board seats within the UK’s top energy companies are held by women? How about the fact that 61% of these businesses have no women on their board whatsoever? The 8th of March is International Women's Day and Rubina Singh from Centrica and Miriam Atkin from Gemserv will be joining Jonny Bairstow, FNZ Editor, on a webinar to explore why much-needed diversity is still so often found to be lacking in 2021. The webinar will explore why women continue to be so poorly represented across the top level of the sector and will uncover the dangers this could spell for the UK’s mission to drive down emissions and tackle climate change – all parts of society must be represented in equal measure if we are to unlock the innovation and range of perspectives required to successfully deliver net zero by 2050. Join us on the webinar to find out more, and critically, offer your own viewpoint in a Q&A session. Speakers: Miriam Atkin, Director of Energy, Gemserv Rubina Singh, Ideation Delivery Lead, Centrica Please note, all data you provide through pre-registration will be shared with our webinar partners once you have viewed the webinar.
