Fewer “Pink” Jobs – Says Global Energy Study

NES Global Talent is sharing their recent Women in Energy Global Study. The study highlights what workplace challenges females face in energy and engineering careers in 2018. NES and research partner, Energy Jobline, collected and analyzed the views from 1,200 female professionals who are working in the energy sector.

“Despite the criticism the energy industry often receives, the study shows the status quo is finally being challenged. Women are feeling positive about the future.” Vicki Codd, Global Marketing Director, NES

Readers can expect to find enlightening statistics on gender diversity topics, such as “Pink vs. Blue Jobs,” flexible working, mentoring and inclusiveness in the workplace”.

“We hope this study is a useful tool for professionals to offer more support and implement more opportunities for women in the industry, to ensure further progress.”

Vicki Codd, Global Marketing Director, NES

Key stats from the study

  • Engineering is the most common job type for women in energy.
  • Only one-fifth claim to specialize in the commonly named pink jobs, such as administration.
  • 63% of women in energy are the primary wage earners in their household.

“What can company’s do to be more inclusive to women?”
