Women in Energy

Across the energy sector, women make up less than 30% of the workforce, but that is changing as more young women enter the sector and as the industry makes a concentrated effort to increase gender diversity.

What's it like to be a woman working in energy? What can both female and male executives do to encourage more diversity in the sector? And what skills make any young professional well prepared for a career in energy?

Join Dr. Jimmie Lenz, the Director of the Master of Engineering Program in Financial Technology, and Lee Reiners, the Executive Director of the Global Financial Markets Center at Duke University for an informal discussion on decentralized finance versus traditional finance, pro's, con's and all the rest.
