wPOWER participates at the SEforALL Forum, advancing women empowerment in the sustainable energy sector

In early April, wPOWER participated at the Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) Forum in New York City to push for greater urgency and action in achieving universal access to clean, affordable energy.

During the event, wPOWER joined representatives from government, business, civil society and international organizations gathered to broker new partnerships and ideas, spur investment and drive action towards sustainable energy, while sharing stories from across the world of how they are making progress towards realizing Sustainable Development Goal 7 (to secure affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030).

wPOWER’s Strategic Partnerships Director, Linda Davis spoke during the session on ‘A People-Centered Accelerator to Advance Gender Equality, Social Inclusion and Women’s Empowerment in the Sustainable Energy Sector’. She stressed the importance of working together to access larger pools of funding and solve these transportation issues through new financing models.
