WOMEN & ENERGY 2016: The Push by Public Sector; Why It matters; Policy and regulation in the Kenyan context

October 15, 2018 |by | 0 Comments | Uncategorized

DISCUSSION

By Eng. Joseph Njoroge PS, Ministry of Energy

·         As part of CSR Corporates were challenged to go to girls schools and encourage  by

    • Providing opportunities for attachment
    • Opening up Space  for employment
    • Participate in school and colleges engagements and hold forums at girls schools to inspire

·         Constitutional requirement by law;

  • Involve women in decision making at all levels in business
  • Although the number of women is high at other departmental level. In  engineering division
    women the percentage of women is very low

AGPO opportunities; Why it is key

Money made by the women doing business goes back to uplift standards at homes

  •  Encourage women to participate and register businesses.
  • Companies registered under AGPO should get exemption from any pre-qualifications.
  • Therefore AGPO holders must be encouraged to do business in the energy sector

Payment of debts

  • Government has prioritized the payment of debts to AGPO companies. Companies have been urged to take advantage of this opportunity

Local Content Buy Kenya, Build Kenya – 40% local content

  • The women were encouraged to pursue this area in the sector.
  • The 30% in the 40% local content must be adhered  and implemented
  • It was noted that it is expensive to train an engineer hence they must be motivated and given
    opportunities

WAY FORWARD

  • CSR programs should start right in primary schools and ensure the pipeline of girls to sciences is
    not lost on the way.
  • All AGPO companies must be given priority and access to opportunities to bid.
  • AGPO companies should not be pre-qualified again after certification by Treasury.
  • The ministry target is 40% not 30% as per Government regulation; the threshold that business
    must go to AGPO companies.
  •  Affirmative action in recruitment and placing of female engineers in the sector is a priority.
  •  Companies to champion school programs

October 15, 2018 |by | 0 Comments | Uncategorized

 

The conference sort to find solutions to increase women’s presence, development and leadership in the vibrant energy sector. With its theme Are women losing out in the green energy revolution?, the participants covered various topics like Women and energy; the push by public sector, impact of the policy on gender and narrowing gap, energy financing and success stories.

The energy sector is gender bias towards men; less than 12% of women sit at the top and middle level management position. Thus, the conference also hosted the first ever “Women in Energy” awards. This was to appreciate those women had made great strides in this male dominated sector.

The main gate of Moi Girl’s High School- Eldoret was closed and padlocked at 7:40a.m. We hooted, but no one opened, so we made our way to the smaller gate. The security officer was there, clad in blue like a police officer. The burly man walked to us.
