In 2016, former Chair of the Florida Public Service Commission Lila Jaber and the law firm of Gunster, launched “Florida’s Women in Energy Leadership Forum” to celebrate the success women leaders in the energy industry have demonstrated in growing Florida’s economy and diversifying an already tremendous workforce. In so doing, this Forum highlights the positive impact of the electric and natural gas industries as large employers and economic developers. The leaders in these industries have important obligations to sustain large scale infrastructure efforts for the benefit of those customers they serve and support Florida’s growth as the 3rd largest state in the country. Exciting and important, this industry attracts world class talent.
The 2017 Forum will be held June 14-16, 2017 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. We are committed to highlighting women leaders in this industry and exploring topics of mutual importance to all stakeholders. Please join us for a three-day event that will include c-level keynote speakers and panelists discussing topics important to all Floridians, especially those interested in seeking opportunities in the energy industry.
