Nordic Energy Equality Network
NEEN is the Nordic umbrella for the promotion of gender diversity and empowerment of women, forming a Nordic voice for an inclusive sustainable energy transition. NEEN was founded on the belief that the sustainable energy transition is far too important to only be decided upon by a narrow section of society within the economy and technology field. It is an issue too vital to not include perspectives from all of society. NEEN brings different voices together, to ensure gender equality and diversity in developing the energy of tomorrow. Diversity brings creativity, and creativity is a much-needed component in the energy sector at this defining moment.
