As the world grapples with the impending challenges of climate change, a concerning gender disparity is revealed in the area of “green skills,” according to a recent report by LinkedIn. The study, drawing insights from a billion-user strong platform, delves into the skill categories crucial for addressing environmental issues. Alarmingly, only 1 in 10 women possess these green skills, compared to 1 in 6 men, despite a hiring rate for such skills standing at 29% above average. The gender gap is particularly pronounced in the renewable energy sector, where women constitute only 34% of the workforce. While the report offers a glimmer of hope, noting a 12.3% increase in women joining green sectors since 2021, the path to gender equity in these vital areas remains a formidable challenge. The study underscores the vulnerability of women to climate change’s impact and emphasizes the missed opportunities for women to actively contribute to climate solutions, highlighting the urgency to address and rectify these discrepancies.
