About WIES

Women in Energy Sector (WIES) founded in 2016, is a voluntary group of professionals working together in the energy sector for encouraging involvement of both women and men at all levels of leadership to promote diversity, inclusion & equality at work place.  


WIES is back again with its 8th edition. The event aims to provide the stage for a dynamic dialogue on the challenges and barriers, the lessons learnt, and the success stories of women leaders in the energy sector.
