South Asia Women in Energy

About Us
The South Asia Women in Energy (SAWIE) is a joint initiative by US Agency for International Development (USAID) and U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) that engages with women professionals representing the energy sector on gender sensitivity and inclusion with the aim to enhance the skills of women executives through knowledge exchange programs.

Further, it identifies women leaders in the energy and infrastructure space who have shown exemplary leadership and highlight their contributions towards the sector to promote gender inclusiveness policies and motivate aspiring qualified women to opt for careers in Indian and global energy as well as industrial and manufacturing spaces.

SAWIE was formally launched by Edgard D. Kagan, Deputy Chief of U.S. Mission to India during the 2nd International Conference on Large-scale Grid Integration of Renewable Energy in September 2019. Since then, we have successfully engaged in conversations towards furthering our objectives.
