Spencer Ogden x Seven Clean Seas - 'A kilo of ocean plastic removed for every placement we make'.

Today is World Earth Day, a day globally where commitments are made to have important discussions around climate change. This year’s theme is “Restore our Earth”, which focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems.  At Spencer Ogden we recognise that it is up to each one of us to restore our earth, not just because we care but because it’s the environment in which we all live and have a responsibility for. Our corporate purpose is “Creating Careers to Power a Sustainable Future”, and as part of our commitment to “Power a Sustainable Future” we have launched an ongoing partnership with Seven Clean Seas, a charity which we already have close ties to via our Singapore office and their past volunteering initiatives.   Seven Clean Seas is an organization that build and develop ocean clean-up teams, they started in 2018 and now organise regular global beach clean-ups and hold talks to fellow ocean lovers all over the world. They are also currently piloting pioneering ocean and river cleaning technologies via innovative floatation crafts. Today Spencer Ogden makes a commitment to help fight the ocean plastic pollution crisis, through plastic offsetting. For every successful candidate placed into a job, Seven Clean Seas will remove 1kg of plastic from the ocean.  Announcing the partnership, Spencer Ogden CEO, Bradley Lewington commented:"As part of our commitment to a sustainable future, this year we have rolled out a number of global and local initiatives which focus on protecting and restoring our natural environment. Seven Clean Seas is a fantastic charity we have worked with before on their 'beach cleans' from our Singapore office.  So, together with continuing the local volunteering programmes and fundraising initiatives, I'm pleased to announce an ongoing partnership that ties each placement we make as a business to the fight against the problem of plastic in our Oceans."

Celebrating International Women's Day 2021 - A discussion with Hannah Badrei

To celebrate International Women's Day, Spencer Ogden is celebrating and promoting the contribution of female talent in the energy sector, sharing their advice on creating a more equal and fair industry for the future. Hannah Badrei, Ph.D. is a vice president at a power and renewables organisation whilst also being a chairwoman at non-profit, Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy (WRISE). Read Hannah’s spotlight interview. This year's International Women's Day theme is 'Choose to Challenge'. A challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge what comes change. What does the International Women's Day slogan #ChoosetoChallenge mean for you in your work life?  One quote that has always resonated with me is from the late Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, “women belong in all places where decisions are being made.”  The impact of the ongoing pandemic has been detrimental to working mothers. We have seen many having to step back and quit their jobs or go part-time (if their employers offer such flexibility), which is a step backwards in trying to fight for gender parity and women in the boardroom.  So for me, the challenge is to remember Justice Ginsburg’s statement and ensure that we are and remain in the places where decisions are being made.  Why did you choose a career in Power & Renewable Energy and choose to get involved with the WRISE organization? Currently, we are experiencing significant impacts related to climate change. It is affecting us all by disrupting our economies, our lives, and costing us dearly. We must all do whatever we can, within our means, to combat climate change. It is real and impacts us on a personal level. In the summer of 2020, we witnessed the most devastating wildfires in California and the worst air quality in the west coast. And in Houston, where I currently reside, we had two named hurricanes simultaneously forming in the Gulf of Mexico. Six months later, we experienced sub-freezing temperature that led to snow, electricity blackouts, water loss, and deaths in one of the largest cities in the US.  I have been in the power and renewables space for 17 years and am a passionate believer that renewables is our future. Many companies and organisations have established Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction targets and renewable energy goals. However, the procurement strategies remain complex and risky and not every company has the internal means and risk appetite to engage. My role is to strategise and create renewable energy solutions that are simplified, accessible, and cost-effective to allow many companies to procure renewable energy. You have managed a team of only men, have you found it challenging? Yes, there are challenges.  Over the years I found, as a woman managing teams of men, that I have been questioned on all fronts due to my gender – Have you accomplished enough? Are you being too assertive? Are you being too nice?  I have come to realise that as a successful leader, you cannot be distracted by the external negative biases that people project onto you and must remain true to your vision and leadership style. Lead with empathy, creativity, and flexibility. In your opinion, why is it important that more women take up opportunities in renewable energy in the near future? Women need to take up opportunities in renewables because it is our future. We all need to play our part in combatting climate change and renewable energy is an immediate solution to reducing GHG emissions. Additionally, renewable energy is fast becoming the most cost-effective source of energy, on par or less expensive than fossil fuel generation, so it is here to stay. Lastly, women bring a different perspective. Women bring a creative outlook and a unique approach to problem solving. They need and deserve to have a seat at the table, particularly on company boards. What is the most important piece of advice you'd give to a woman thinking of starting a career in renewable energy?  I serve as the co-chair of the Houston Chapter of WRISE - Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy. It is a wonderful organisation dedicated to promoting the education, professional development, and advancement of women in the renewable industries/sustainable energy sector. In this capacity, I interact with my women thinking of starting a career or pivoting to renewable energy. My advice to these women is to: Continue learning and be confident in your knowledge.Volunteer and be engaged with industry non-profit organizations that support women in renewables and sustainability such as WRISE.Seek out a mentor. In addition to WRISE National 1-on-1 mentoring program, our Houston chapter has organized several minute mentoring events that have been a great success. On International Women's Day, what is the most important message you want to send out to young women thinking about their careers? Make sure you have a voice and have confidence in yourself. You will never know everything, at any age really, so be confident in your knowledge. Ask questions and be heard.

Celebrating International Women’s Day 2021 – A discussion with Ana Santos

To celebrate International Women's Day, Spencer Ogden is celebrating and promoting the contribution of female talent in the energy sector, sharing their advice on creating a more equal and fair industry for the future. Ana is Project Manager at one of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers. Read Ana’s spotlight interview. This year's International Women's Day theme is 'Choose to Challenge'. A challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge what comes change. What does the International Women's Day slogan #ChoosetoChallenge mean for you in your work life?  Do not stop doing something you want to do just because it seems like it may be hard, or it is not common for a woman to do.  Naturally, when people get into situations, they are not familiar with they avoid them or not pursue them any further. But life is full of challenges, so if you want to do something and you are passionate about it then why not do it? If you choose something because it is a more common or the popular route, even that choice you will always face challenges. Whatever decision you make, there will always be challenges. At least you are doing what you want or have envisioned doing. And, if you are doing something you believe in, you’ll be happy! Why did you choose to become a project manager? After some internships, my first real job was as an operations and maintenance manager for a Paper Mill, and the maintenance department was a department that was not commonly inhabited by men. As this company was a small company, the job came with a lot of roles and tasks. One person had to do almost everything! Even though I was in the O&M department, at this company construction fell under maintenance, so I looked after construction works when needed as well as O&M works.  After seven years and of doing everything on the paper mill, which was a big learning curve. I had gained a lot of experienced at the company so I decided to make a change and pursue a career in project management in the construction area. I got another job, and my first assignment was a wind project, a very big project and I was lucky to land this position. This was a few years ago and here I am now still in the wind industry, recently I joined one of the top players in turbine manufacturing, as a site manager and was recently promoted to a project manager. In your opinion, why is it important that more women take up project management in the near future? Even though it is important for women to take up jobs in currently male dominated industries, it is important to remember that you have a choice and women should not just take a job because they are doing it to prove a point but doing it because they are passionate about that job or they want to try it out.  Women can choose to work in an industry where they are outnumbered and do the work just as well as their male colleagues. To women who have made the decision to join an industry that is male dominated, what advice would you give to them? Women should be assertive, not be afraid to share their opinions and get involved with hard decision making. Remain professional and do not worry about what people think of you. When you’re in a room predominately filled with men and you may be the only woman or one of the only women, don’t let that stop you from speaking up and saying what you want to say.  In an environment where people are not used to women it may be challenging, and it may take people time to get used to seeing a woman in a top position, making the hard decisions. My advice is to keep your assertiveness and do your job to the best of your ability. Do you think there is a stereotype attached to female wind industry? I would say there is no stereotypes attached to women in the industry as there is still not many women working in the industry. The women I have seen are positioned in HSEQ roles. My experience with my current employer has been positive as a woman. I am seeing a few women in roles that are commonly dominated by men such as Site Managers. The company is open-minded, and I am seeing more and more women on site during my time working here. Let’s hope this trend keeps and spreads to other companies in the industry. On International Women's Day, what is the most important message you want to send out to young women thinking about their careers? Make sure you do what you are passionate about. Don’t let others or society act as an obstacle to what you want to do.  You are living your own life, not anyone else’s and you only get one chance at it, so never stop doing what you want to do because people around you do not approve. Go for it!

Celebrating International Women’s Day 2021 – A discussion with Zoe Barnes

To celebrate International Women's Day, Spencer Ogden is celebrating and promoting the contribution of female talent in the energy sector, sharing their advice on creating a more equal and fair industry for the future. Zoe is a partner at an energy consultancy, on secondment as strategy manager for an offshore wind developer and director at a national program promoting supply chain in the UK. Read Zoe’s spotlight interview. This year's International Women's Day theme is 'Choose to Challenge'. A challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge what comes change. What does the International Women's Day slogan #ChoosetoChallenge mean for you in your work life?  Challenge to me is about pushing yourself to think big. When you have a concept or idea, think about the scope, its possibility, even if at the start it may seem impossible. When you think big it is surprising how much can be achieved.  This is something I have learnt from my colleagues. Rather than continuing just to think of ourselves as a consultancy of a dozen people doing well, as we were five years ago, they said, “OK, we got the UK consultancy side of the business going well, what else can we do?”. If we want to be an offshore wind developer, why not? If we want to take on other geographical markets, why not? This attitude has led to growth that I couldn’t have imagined on the day I walked in the door. Also, take up opportunities that come your way, even if they look out of your league or intimidating. Never be too afraid to try. I think this is something women sometimes don’t do as often as men. We need to be more bullish about our own capabilities. Why did you choose to work in the renewable energy sector? I chose to work in renewables early on, when I was at university studying biology and environmental science. Initially the plan was to become a conservationist. However, whilst this is an important role, I just had a feeling that going down this route I would be treating a symptom and not the cause of much environmental decline. So, I went into renewables, as it offers a solution to an environmental problem. I did not choose my particular roles, but I took opportunities within the sector as they arose. That is what I think careers are about. As a graduate, my first manager gave me some very sage advice, he said, “Careers are like surfing: you line yourself up and when an exciting looking wave comes along, you paddle as hard as you can and then you ride it for as long as it is fun.” I have always tried to bear this in mind during my time in the renewable energy sector. Women are still significantly underrepresented in the renewable energy sector, why do you think it is important that women take up roles within the sector in the near future? The sector needs to attract really good people (both women and men), to solve the challenges of a fast growing and evolving sector. We need skills and experience from other sectors as well as those starting their careers, bringing passion and new perspectives to the sector. The lack of women in the sector is a missed opportunity in two ways: women should have the opportunity to be part of a sector that will pay a huge part in our economic transition to a low carbon future simply as a matter of equality; and secondly, the sector can’t afford to miss out on potential talent because women may not consider that there is a rewarding career path there. On the first point, renewables may have started out as a niche sector but it is inevitable that it will become a huge part of our economy in the coming decades. This represents a significant opportunity for skilled professionals, and men and women alike deserve the chance to help shape that future. Secondly, the fact that the renewables is in such a significant growth phase means that it needs all the talent it can get, not just in the mid term but right now. If the sector doesn’t offer the flexibility required by many women, it will continue to lose out simply because of lack of access to a pool of talent that could really help drive the progress of the industry. What is the most important piece of advice you'd give to a woman thinking of starting a career in renewable energy? I would say, absolutely go for it, it is a great sector to be in and generally very progressive and culturally very good for women.  Renewables is an excellent sector, moving very fast with a lot of opportunity and need, due to the shortage of skills in the sector. Do you think there is a stereotype attached to female engineers? From my experience, no as I think the sector is very open-minded and I have not seen any discrimination.  I think there is a stereotype that all roles in the renewables are technical roles. There are a large number of roles in offshore wind and the wider renewable energy sector that do not require engineering or technical degrees. There is not enough awareness of this. On International Women's Day, what is the most important message you want to send out to young women thinking about their careers? Renewables is a really fast growing sector which presents a huge amount of opportunity. In such a fast-growing industry, traditional job role progression and career paths do not exist in the same way. New roles and technical areas are being created all the time and if you have talent, the opportunities for an interesting and challenging career are huge.

Celebrating International Women’s Day 2021 – A discussion with Shazreen Meor Danial

To celebrate International Women's Day, Spencer Ogden is celebrating and promoting the contribution of female talent in the energy sector, sharing their advice on creating a more equal and fair industry for the future. Shazreen is an Electrical Engineer at AES Clean Energy. Read Shazreen’s spotlight interview. This year's International Women's Day theme is 'Choose to Challenge'. A challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge what comes change. What does the International Women's Day slogan #ChoosetoChallenge mean for you in your work life?  Challenge is a start to opportunity, learning, advancement and betterment. I have been in my current role for a year and when I started the job, I knew that I did not know everything I needed to do this job, but I had the foundation and the background to tackle it. I continue to be challenged but I am learning, applying my knowledge and experience and continue to grow and advance. I want to be an expert in what I am doing and want to bring value to the team. All of this is driven by choosing to challenge myself. Why did you choose to become an electrical engineer? It just so happens that I did not quite choose to become an electrical engineer. I grew up in Malaysia, and after graduating high school, Malaysia was challenged with an economic crisis. My parents had always aimed for their children to attend college and obtaining scholarship was an important means to do so, especially if I were to consider an overseas university. So, I applied for a number of scholarships to study abroad, but with the economic crisis at the time, the college and subject of degree were determined for me. The scholarship sponsor was Malaysia’s national power company, so I attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and pursued their very reputable Electric Power Engineering program. During the four years study (added another year for a master’s program), I realised that electric power engineering is a “mature” field. Nothing was new, the electric grid had been around for a long time. I then found a specific topic within electric power that was “newer”, power electronics.  I became very interested in power electronics, and through my professor, I found and completed a summer internship with a small company specialising in wind technology.  Following that, my career in renewable energy began – wind, fuel cell and solar. In your opinion, why is it important that more women take up engineering roles in the near future? Women bring different perspectives, ways of thinking and doing. Engineering will soon no longer be a ‘special’ field as it is becoming more popular, therefore it is important to have balance.  Balance is good for society, as well as the sector itself. Equality benefits both women and men. What is the most important piece of advice you'd give to a woman thinking of starting a career in solar/engineering? A career in solar/engineering is not only technically challenging, but it is also challenging from the social aspect.  Currently, male engineers still dominate the field and there is still gender imbalance in the presence of women, compensation, and opportunities. However, you should not let that discourage you, know your value. A woman can bring so many positive perspectives to the industry. With the challenges face, there is huge learning opportunities. Be open to the challenge and you will learn and continue to learn. Do you think there is a stereotype attached to female engineers? Yes, in a predominantly male environment it is seen that women do not speak enough to make their presence known or feel as comfortable to share their opinions. However, female engineers have the same grounds as male engineers to express opinions and share knowledge. Working in the sector, I have learnt enough so that I no longer feel shy to speak up, ask questions and share my opinion in a room dominated by male engineers. I consider us as equals, and if anything differentiates us, it is the level of knowledge, expertise, and professionalism. I look up to both men and women with experience and knowledge, to learn from them. I do not let the stereotype affect me, as stereotypes may always exist. On International Women's Day, what is the most important message you want to send out to young women thinking about their careers? Always be open to learning. Be confident, but humble and know your value. You will make mistakes, but you will learn from them and build on them. These days, my motto is – “Be open to keep learning, but confident as you bring value to the table too.”
