This week saw the launch of the fifth annual edition of the Women in Energy Global Study, a critical guide to the position and attitudes of women in the global energy industry in 2023-24. The report explores what jobs women are doing, the level of seniority they are reaching, the career issues they face, what motivates them to contribute their skills to the energy transition, and what they need to thrive.

In October 2023, a comprehensive survey of women and men working in the global energy industry was launched to gain a picture of today's sector. The survey ran for eight weeks and participants were asked a total of 24 questions. It was circulated to a combination of Energy Jobline and NES Fircroft’s email databases and promoted through websites and social media channels.

Some Key Highlights from the Report

  • 5% of female respondents stated they feel safe at work, while 8.5% stated they do not.
  • Women suggested remote work, flexible hours, and employee assistance as ways their organisations could better support them.
  • The top reasons for respondents considering leaving their current roles were to seek new challenges and a lack of leadership opportunities.
  • When asked to rank their priorities in considering their next employer, commitment to achieving Net Zero, an inclusive work environment, and employee benefits were ranked highest.
  • According to the report, male and female respondents reported an improved work-life balance compared to previous years. The report also highlights the continued adaptation of companies to the new flexible landscape post-COVID-19.
