In April, we announced Seequent has actually signed on as the first Global Visibility Partner for Women in Geothermal (WING).
Founded in 2013, WING now has around 1000 members in 48 nation groups in geothermal hotspots all over the world from New Zealand to El Salvador to Denmark.As WING’s Exposure Partner, we are proud to be sponsoring this year’s Visibility Scholarship.Andrea(Andy)Blair, Global Chairman of WING, says:
“Ladies have to be visible, in positions of impact, deciding and leading, and working as function models for those desiring to enter these roles too. We believed it was a great fit to have Seequent as our partner in this area offered their Leapfrog Geothermal software application, used by many in the industry, provides the tools to make it possible for visualisation and offer clearness. “Open to all WING members, the scholarship will support speaking
at the New Zealand Geothermal Conference in November. Seequent will provide flights, lodging and conference registration for the effective candidate, chosen from conference abstracts screened by WING and Seequent.”As a long-time fan of WING, and their mission to support females in the Geothermal industry, we are happy to be their very first Worldwide Exposure Partner, and sponsor the Presence Scholarship. I’m anticipating being a part of the scholarship procedure, and satisfying the effective candidate in November, “says Jeremy O’Brien Seequent’s Geothermal Business Manager.O ‘Brien is among the starting WINGmen.” I’ve been included with Andy and the WING team from the start
, along with other coworkers at Seequent. It’s been really inspiring to be part of the network as they work to break down barriers for ladies in the industry.”Blair says it’s also essential to have a meaningful proportion of WINGmen as members as they make up 84%of the geothermal market, and hold the huge bulk of leadership positions.”Without the support of males, its not likely significant modification will occur.”Are you thinking about applying, or understand somebody who might be?Applications for the Exposure Scholarship are now open– see below for more information.
