Women in Power Systems (WPS) is a community that advocates for women in all power systems roles, facilitates their connections, celebrates their successes and helps them achieve a balance between their professional and private life.

WPS is founded by women for everyone in the power industry, bringing together people of different backgrounds, professions and positions.

Our goals

We want to inspire and empower girls and women to look at career opportunities in the power industry, create connections and show individuals, companies and organizations the benefits of giving equal opportunities to women in power industry roles of their choice.

Our vision

Our vision is a power industry of equal opportunity and fruitful collaboration where an organization such as ours is no longer necessary.

WPS is supported by sponsor companies that promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the power industry.

WPS media partners include CWIEME, Energy Central, Electricity Forum, Electric Power Reliability Alliance (EPRA), Skills Ontario, Women’s Engineering Society (WES), Women of Powerline Technicians and Transformer Technology, with the combined reach of more than 100,000 power industry professionals.

For more information about our community activities and sponsorship opportunities, please see our digital leaflet.

Advisory Board

The Women in Power Systems Advisory Board provides the expert knowledge, insights and guidance for our advocacy campaigns and other projects. Our Board Members are passionate about realizing WPS goals and volunteer their time, advice and connections to advance the WPS mission. New members are welcome regardless of gender or profession, with a minimum of 5 years of experience in the power industry.
