Women in Energy Conference Stakeholders
The Women in Energy Conference has a number of key stakeholders including:
President Obama’s launched Power Africa with the goal to double access to electricity in sub-Saharan Africa. Working in partnership with African Governments, the private sector, and the donor community, the US Government works to promote investment in Africa’s power sector. Power Africa seeks to support projects, programs, and policies that strive to reduce gender inequalities and promote the effective engagement of both men and women in the energy sector across sub-Saharan Africa. Advancing the full participation of women is a key goal of U.S. foreign policy, and a critical component of Power Africa.
