The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) is launching a Gender and Energy Community of Practice (GECoP) online space to discuss, learn and explore the linkages between gender equality and the energy sector. The space aims to bring together practitioners from around the world to share experiences, emerging tools, available resources, and knowledge on Gender Equality and Energy through an interactive platform. To help launch this community, ESMAP is hosting an online discussion on Gender Dimensions of Labor Impacts within Electricity Infrastructure Development, with topics focusing on jobs and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
