Background of Fellowship
As part of the IEA’s modernisation strategy, the agency has launched an effort to promote gender diversity across the organisation. IEA’s Gender Diversity Initiative aims to increase IEA’s involvement in substantive gender-related programmes; support the career development of all staff equally and make the IEA a more obvious career option for qualified women.
The Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) Initiative under the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) was set up in 2010 to promote policies and programs that advance clean energy technology including the need to harness all talent and human capital to affect progress. C3E was launched to attract more women to rewarding clean energy careers and support their advancement into leadership positions.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) invites applications for the IEA C3E Fellowship 2019 from women researchers. The Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) is an initiative under the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) that promotes policies and programmes for the advancement of clean energy technology. The objective of the fellowship programme is to support the agency’s gender ratio strategy. The fellows at the IEA will provide both the agency and C3E TCP with direct input from the next generation of aspiring women leaders. Monthly remuneration of EUR 2000 will be given to the selected fellows.
