Radius Systems invites you to join a thought-provoking webinar aimed at tackling one of the most pressing challenges facing the utility sector today: the skill shortage.

We are joined by a line of panelists from across the industry including Sarah Hopkins, former Wales & West Utilities HR Director. Sarah will focus on the changing nature of skills and experiences in the sector, referencing highlights of the recent report by the Womens Utilities Network on Unconscious Bais, including revealing insights such as the fact that 1/3 of women are considering leaving the industry because they feel unheard. We will debate practical steps that organisations can implement to address this issue through having important conversations, development opportunities such as coaching and psychological safety, and the implementation of policies and practices. The final piece from Sarah, looks at the role of gender equality in the sustainability narrative.

She is joined by Helen Forde, HR Director of Radius Systems who brings 24 years of working at engineering giant Rolls Royce also shares practical insights into best practices and then the application of realistic tactics for smaller organisations.

Along with Rob Long, Chief Operating Officer from Wales & West Utilities and Nicola Smith, from Develop Training.
