Many firms within the energy and power sectors are developing their vision for the future and prioritising a move towards decarbonisation and renewables.
As they go through this transition, they have to navigate a multitude of new challenges. One issue connects all of these factors: people — more specifically, workforces.
The energy and power sectors have sometimes struggled to tap into the expanded talent pool open to inclusive and diverse organisations.
