The National Launch of WePOWER India Partnership Forum is scheduled on 19 October 2021 (Tuesday) from 16:30 - 18:10 IST, being organized by ISGF in association with We Power and World Bank.
The South Asia Gender and Energy Facility II (SAGE II) program is a collaboration between the World Bank’s South Asia Energy and Social Development units. It is a continuation of the recently concluded SAGE I, which expanded the Bank’s successful operational response for reducing gender gaps in the South Asia energy sector through the Bank’s investments and analytic and advisory work. Towards its goal of achieving gender equality in the energy sector, SAGE successfully launched the regional South Asia Women in Power Sector Professional Network (WePOWER) in February 2019 with the objectives of supporting workforce participation of women in energy projects and utilities, and promoting normative change for women and girls in Science Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education. The World Bank renewed its commitment to WEPOWER until 2024 under the South Asia Gender and Energy Facility II (SAGE II) program. As the WEPOWER Interim-Secretariat, SAGE II was authorized by senior management to expand and scale-up WEPOWER through an extensive workplan. One of the key goals is to increase the number of WEPOWER Partners in India towards the goal of 50 total partners by 2024. The objectives of the WePower India Partnership Forum are - Raise awareness of the gender employment gap in the energy sector amongst Indian power utilities; Provide an overview of the WePOWER Network and what Partners are doing to address this gap; Form a consensus from participants to join the WePOWER Network to promote gender equality in the Indian energy sector together.
