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 male and female executives do to encourage more diversity in the sector? And what skills make any young professional well prepared for a career in energy?

Industry leaders and innovators will address those questions (and more!) in a panel discussion from 3-3:45 p.m. Eastern on March 31.

Panelists include:
--Lauren Shum (E'17) - VP of Engineering, Sunforge
--Olivia Eskew (MEM'18) - Policy and Strategy Analyst, Cypress Creek Renewables
--Arsheen Allam (MBA'17) - Founder & CEO, GOLeafe (named to Forbes's 2019 "30 Under 30 in Energy")
