International Women’s Day 2022
Today is International Women’s Day (IWD).
Every 8 March, people join together to recognise and celebrate women.
For IWD 2022, this includes celebrating the thousands of women working in the natural gas industry.
In Australia and around the world women are integral to the natural gas supply chain, providing cleaner energy to power homes and businesses, and support the uptake of renewables for a cleaner energy future.
The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day campaign is ‘Break the Bias’. IWD organisers are inviting participants to cross their arms as a symbol of solidarity against gender bias.
The official IWD website states that “whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field.”
The natural gas industry strongly champions gender diversity, supporting school-based STEM programs, internships and career opportunities for women.
Brighter has a proud history of support for women in the natural gas industry. In previous years, we have previously partnered with the Superstars of STEM program, supporting women and girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) careers, and has also highlighted several amazing women working in and around the industry through our Bright Sparks program.
