The Chilean chapter of the World Energy Council has developed a Women in Energy Chile programme in partnership with Deloitte, which looks to help women integrate at an early stage into a leadership network within the energy industry. This will enable greater opportunities, drive knowledge sharing and bolster new thinking in an industry that needs fresh ideas and perspectives.

According to a 2017 project with 48 energy companies, the energy sector is one of the least gender diverse in Chile, with a participation rate of women of just 22%, and only 12% of company board directors and CEOs held by women.

The Selection Committee for Chile's Women in Energy have identified the following programme objectives:
  • Create an intersectional group able to represent the entire energy industry spectrum
  • Build a wide array of technical knowledge about all energy resources and sectors
  • Gather individuals with relevant experience that can contribute actionable and innovative solutions to the energy debate

Here's a list of the women selected for the initiative. More information can be found in this link (Spanish language).
