At HERWorld18, we turned the energy gender gap on its head.
In an industry where women comprise about 20 percent of the workforce, most energy conferences have a similar percentage of female speakers. At HERWorld18, we too had a roughly 80/20 breakdown.
82 percent of our speakers were women. 18 percent were male.
One of our goals as an organization is to elevate the women in this industry. But we also want men to have a seat at the table and a voice in the conversation.
So we asked one of our male speakers — Jason Korman, CEO of culture design firm Gapingvoid — what he thought of the HERWorld18 experience, both as an industry outsider and a member of the gender minority.
