SHMA Talks

Sparking the debate of diversity in utilities

Sarah Walker-Smith and business leaders from Lucid Energy, EDF and Severn Trent Water

The recent pandemic has led to the government suspending the requirement for businesses to submit their gender pay gap reports.  However, for those businesses that have already done so – on average just 18% of those in the top pay quartile were women, compared to the national average of just over 40% - why is utilities lagging so far behind?

Please join us for our next episode of SHMA Talks with our CEO – Sarah Walker-Smith and business leaders from Lucid Energy, EDF and Severn Trent Water to discuss the issues of diversity and inclusion within the energy and utilities sectors, the lessons that can be learned from other sectors, and the opportunities and barriers as a result of COVID-19.
