People profiles

Whether you’re just starting your career or have already gained experience in a similar industry, we take a look at some of the roles undertaken by the 45,000 people who work in the energy networks across the UK and Ireland.

Professional networks

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.

Pride in Energy

The Pride in Energy Network is a diversity forum and network for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) members of the energy industry and their allies. The Pride in Energy network was created in response to a need for an organisation to address LGBT+ issues in the energy industry.

Diversity in Energy Speakers Directory

Trade body Energy UK has created the Diversity in Energy Speakers Directory to highlight the plethora of experts from BAME backgrounds from right across the energy sector – drawing on their members and beyond – in generation to retail and new energy services such as heat, transport and smart systems flexibility.

ReWiRE mentoring programme

Regen has set up a mentoring programme to support women in the clean energy industry to progress their careers. The ReWiRE mentoring programme has been hugely popular and running since 2015. It specifically focuses on middle managers in the clean energy sector looking to move up to senior management positions and those currently working in senior management looking to move.

Showcasing DEI

The road to net zero won’t just be paved by companies generating sustainable energy, but by those of us building, connecting and maintaining the infrastructure needed to support customers. The entire energy industry – including all of us represented by Energy Networks Association – has a vital role to play in the clean energy revolution.

Take a look at our Showcasing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives booklet.
