Our goal:

Women in Energy, WONY is a non-profit association, which has been founded in Budapest in 2017. Our aim is to increase the proportion of women leaders in the energy sector, not only in Hungary, but also in the CEE Countries.

Our objective is to support the growing professional community of women in energy field, enable women to reach top decision-making positions and bring women board mandates to a visible level.

We strongly believe that the unlimited power of women can inspire and provide a wealth of success to the industry especially in the current very fast changing new energy world.
Diversity on boards leads to competitiveness and can contribute to improvements. A board has to be innovative which is the key to efficiency.

Energy revolution cannot happen without women. This revolution has a huge impact to our whole future. It would be a big mistake not to use the women power in this particular situation. The women power can bring more efficiency, more competitiveness and more human sensibility to our common business.

Our mission:

Our main mission is to develop programs to provide networking opportunities, foster career and leadership development of women who work already in the sector or want to work in the energy industry.

In the spirit of equality we aim to promote public awareness of understanding women’s added value on boards, we encourage companies to rethink their business model, and support women working in energetic fields.

Our mission is also to increase the visibility of the top manager women to inspire the younger generation, in order to give them good examples. By guiding and training young women we would like to make it possible to enhance their skills, to deal, to interact and to learn from wiser women in high positions. By opening female perspectives and creating a valuable female talent pool we might contribute to the next generation of energy leaders. Our clear message to the young women: Energy is one of the most exciting sector, let’s create together our common future! 


Thank you to these great companies to support the diversity!
