GreenPowerMonitor celebrates its Women Engineers

GreenpowerMonitor Women Engineers

Back in 2014 the Woman Engineering Society launched the “Woman Engineering Day” on 23 June. Such an event is recognized by the UNESCO and is designed to raise the profile of women who are excelling in engineering, as well as to inspire future generations of female talent to enter the profession.

The company group vision implies also to ensure woman’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of the decision-making process.

GreenPowerMonitor (GPM) is proud to have a bunch of female engineers specialized in the energy industry. Currently, GPM counts more than 20 women working in different aspects of the organization, from logistics to marketing, from sales to software development; this is just a little glimpse into the many incredible things our experts are doing to advance the future of energy.

Here are some of our expert engineers working towards a greener energy transition:
