‘Women In Energy Global Study 2024’

NES Fircroft and Energy Jobline, supported by POWERful Women and ALLY Energy, are delighted to present the fifth 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. 

We hope the data will provide valuable insights for business leaders, managers, recruiters and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) professionals – indeed, anyone needing to attract and retain talent in the modern energy workplace.

Across five continents and what is revealed to be an increasingly diverse and complex set of energy sub-sectors, our report dives into the data to reveal the nature and aspirations of the female energy workforce. It explores the kinds of jobs women are doing and 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 truly thrive.  

This year the survey also tracked attitudes to the following live topics in the world of work right now:

The work-life interface and flexible working
What women want from their employer to help them thrive
Company attitudes and commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion
Skills and strengths for the energy transition
Job mobility, transferable skills and the evolution of the sector

We were delighted with the high number of survey responses we received, meaning that year on year our report gives a valuable insight into the global energy sector.

It appears to be an industry that is attracting new talent, as around 70% of all our respondents have under 10 years’ experience in the industry, with the number at entry level rising from last year. However, we also have had more respondents with a lot of experience in the industry (21 years and more) and a higher number in the most senior roles of senior manager, Director or Board member.

NES Fircroft˛ and Energy Jobline would like to thank our supporting partners ALLY Energy and POWERful Women, and the thousands of energy professionals who took our survey, allowing us to support our clients in advancing gender diversity and inclusion in the workplace and securing the talent they need.

The Women in Energy Global Study 2024 was exclusively launched on 7th March at the 6th ‘Energy Workforce of the Future Summit and Career Fair’ in Houston, TX.
