Women in Utilities Network
The Women in Utilties Network (WUN) was started to give women the skills and confidence they need to build lasting, fulfilling careers in the utility sector. WUN seeks to help other women to build the right networks, get the right training and take control of their own work lives at whichever stage of their career they are at. WUN helps women connect with other women so we can work together to support one another, share learnings, build confidence and create a better future for women in utilities.
