As part of Climate Week NYC, for the third year in a row, the EI’s Generation 2050 initiative will be holding an online roundtable to discuss matters of intergenerational importance relating to the climate crisis.

YOUNG AND ON BOARDS: How listening to future talent can be a short cut to business and climate success

Across the energy sector, organisations are waking up to the benefits of giving a louder voice at board level to employees or members earlier in their careers - the part of the workforce that has grown up more engaged in the reality of the climate crisis and who will be with the industry through to 2050 and beyond.

Listening to and acting on their views and perspectives doesn’t just generate far-sighted, innovative ideas for the business, it also helps develop the communication and advocacy skills of those rising up through the ranks, producing a more diverse pipeline of future leaders and helping to close the generational climate change gap.

It can take various forms, from establishing shadow boards or giving young employees a role in the main board, through to providing resources to establish young employee networks and opportunities to have a say via corporate platforms or channels.

Chaired by EI President Juliet Davenport OBE HonFEI, this roundtable will hear first-hand from young energy professionals about their experiences taking part in such initiatives.
