Description


WiRE Networking Meet-ups

Women Only. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED

Compelling Presenters. Welcoming Environment. Women Only

Join WiRE, Elemental Energy and BCSEA for WiRE's inaugural networking meet-up in Vancouver.

WiRE meet-ups present a welcoming and casual opportunity to meet peers, share ideas and opportunities, and educate colleagues about projects and initiatives of interest to the group. All women working in a field related to renewable energy are invited, as are students and developing professionals who are looking for perspectives on joining the renewable energy sector.

Resja Campfens

RESJA CAMPFENS, Managing Partner, Form Power Corp.

Presentation Topic: A Creative Approach to the Energy Industry

It is well known that if you have a group thinking alike from the same background, age and gender, you will miss opportunities for innovation. However, women currently only represent 5% of executive board members, 19% of non-executive board members, and 14% of senior management teams in the energy sector – a sector that is at a critical point where its progress (or lack thereof) could drastically change what the world looks like for our future generations.

Resja Campfens has worked in the renewable energy sector for over 20 years and has grown from managing permitting projects, to Board Director position and the President and CEO of a public company, and now to owning her own energy business.

She will talk about the path she took to navigate a mainly male environment and how she found her place in the renewable energy sector. She will also talk about emerging trends in the renewable energy sector and how diversity and creative thinking support innovation.


Presented in partnership with Elemental Energy & British Columbia Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA).
