This Partnership Forum will launch efforts to scale up the South Asia Women in Power Sector Professional Network (WePOWER) in India. India is significantly investing in clean energy, and grid and utility modernization. Job profiles in the Indian energy sector are evolving with more emphasis on ICT and renewable energy technologies. To meet the growing demand for skilled human resources, the power sector must also attract, develop and retain talented women professionals.
