Rural energy provider Calor has demonstrated its commitment to promoting gender diversity in the heating and plumbing sector with its support for two initiatives – the Women Installers Together Conference and Women in LPG Global Network.

The Women Installers Together Conference is a national one-day event held on the 4 July 2018, for women who work as plumbers and gas engineers to celebrate their skills, staying power and achievements, created by the Stopcocks women plumbers’ organisation.

Similarly, the World LPG Association (WLPGA) has recognised an opportunity for the LPG industry to take actions that can address the issue of improving diversity in the workforce. The Women in LPG Global Network (WINLPG) was founded with the mission to support and empower women in the LPG Industry by leadership, coaching, mentoring and promoting role models and case studies.

Rebecca Hart, corporate responsibility manager at Calor, said: “Here at Calor we feel it is important to improve access and conditions for women installers, to ensure a growing female presence in the industry and equality for those working in the sector. That’s why we’re supporting the Women Installers Together Conference and the Women in LPG Global Network.

“Whether you require assistance in undertaking LPG training or becoming qualified, or support with switching customers to LPG and boiler installations, Calor is on hand to help at every step of the journey.”
