Head of Corporate Strategy; Executive General Manager Asset Safety and Performance, Energy Queensland
The electricity sector, like many industries, is undergoing a rapid period of transformation across the globe. As new products like solar, battery and electric vehicles become more accessible, evolving technology, greater choice, improved data analytics and customer desire for more control are driving many of these changes and customers’ expectations are shifting. There has never been a more exciting time for a career in the energy sector.
Energy Queensland understands that our ability to deliver on customer expectations for affordable, safe, secure and sustainable electricity will be underpinned by a skilled, diverse and capable workforce. Strong science, technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills coupled with the Arts (STEAM) are extremely important for our industry’s talent pipeline and for our future of the Queensland economy.
We are proud to be partnering with Dream Big Australia to maximise the opportunities to improve career choices for women. We have seen the Dream Big initiative grow to become a not for profit organisation and have seen the impact of the student experiences at our partnership launch in November 2018. Dream Big is playing an instrumental role in inspiring our next generation of talent and showcasing the importance of having passion within STEAM fields.
