The workforce of the future: How can young professionals align themselves with the energy transition? is a joint webinar ran by the Nigeria and Caribbean YPN branches.

Time: 5pm Nigeria / 12pm T&T

Recent years have seen a positive shift in how the world views different aspects of the energy industry: energy management, climate change, skills, leadership, policies and compliance as well as many others. However, today’s energy sector leaders are currently faced with making decisions which will determine the sector and planet that Generation 2050 will inherit.

How can young professionals who would become the workforce of tomorrow align themselves with the ongoing energy transition? How can young professionals navigate employment challenges? How can they equip themselves to contribute to moving the energy transition toward realizing the sustainable energy needs of future generations? What initiatives can they undertake locally to promote and achieve net-zero goals by 2050?

Our panel of experts will provide key guidance and insight to young professionals on the soft and technical skills necessary to be successful ambassadors of the energy transition and effective future energy leaders.

  •        Hearing the perspective of expert practitioners on how they can key into the energy transition.
  •        Taking control of their future and making a positive contribution to the world.
