Meet a remarkable woman playing a leading role in the clean energy revolution in the heart of oil country:
Dr. Nawal Al-Hosany is Director of Sustainability at Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company and Director of the prestigious Zayed Future Energy Prize while also teaching as an adjunct professor at Masdar’s Institute of Science and Technology. (I’d like to learn her time-management skills!)
Listen to her in this candid interview with host Joan Michelson at the Climate Leadership Gala./p>
- The issues facing her country as they face the realities of the oil.
- What the Zayed Future Energy Prize is and how to apply
- How Masdar is leading the way
- What it’s like being a professional woman in clean energy in the Middle East
- And more….
It’s especially interesting now as the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia launched his Vision 2030 project to drastically reduce Saudi’s dependence on oil and increase women’s economic opportunities, though the jury is still out on both.
