The AEMC looks forward to celebrating International Women’s Day tomorrow. The United Nations theme for International Women’s Day 2017 is ‘women in the changing world of work – planet 50-50 by 2030.’ The AEMC is proud to have already delivered on this goal. We are committed to a diverse workplace that reflects our stakeholders and the wider Australian community and we support and promote flexible working arrangements and work/life balance. This commitment is reflected in the data – the number of women as a proportion of our total workforce is 57% and as a proportion of our senior management team is 71%.
Beyond our own organisation, we are also doing our bit to support others. Our Chief Executive, Anne Pearson, is a member of the International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER) steering committee which supports the ICER’s women in energy initiative. The initiative is designed to cultivate the growth and advancement of women in energy regulation through practical tools, for example mentoring, training and networking.
