GoWithFlow CEO Jane Hoffer Leads Panel on Gender and Diversity at Decarbonisation Summit
- Hoffer a seasoned tech industry leader
- Discussion to focus on innovation in sustainability
- Held in conjunction with COP26 in Glasgow
GLASGOW, Scotland —#DecarbonisationSummit and #COP26 — Nov. 9, 2021 — GoWithFlow, a pioneer in delivering technology that helps organizations transition to electric vehicles, will spearhead a discussion on gender and diversity as part of the first-ever Decarbonisation Summit being held Nov. 9-10 in Glasgow, concurrent with the United Nations’ Climate Change Conference, known as COP26.
The inaugural Decarbonisation Summit, presented by Green.TV Media and Scottish energy company SSE, aims to propel the narrative of a fully decarbonised future and advocate for innovative approaches to decarbonisation.
GoWithFlow CEO Jane Hoffer will lead the Nov. 10 panel on Gender, Diversity and Decarbonisation, discussing the differentiated role women and under-represented groups play in typically white male-oriented fields.
Simply put, companies with more diverse workforces perform better than companies that don’t. In one example, a Harvard Business Review study of more than 22,000 companies around the world found that by going from no women in corporate leadership (the CEO, the board of directors and other C-suite positions) to a 30% female leadership share, companies saw an average 15% increase in profitability.
“Inclusion and belonging are concepts that go beyond skills and gender breakdown percentages,” Hoffer says. “When a company truly imbues its culture with values that reflect inclusion, that’s when real change happens.”
With her blend of engineering and sales background, Hoffer has led sales initiatives at global companies like IBM Corporation and founded, launched and sold technology startups, including Prescient Systems. She brings a strong focus on team-building and empowering employees to embrace responsibility, take risks and grow in a trusted, open environment.
As CEO of GoWithFlow, she has championed the company’s transition from R&D-focused technology to a commercial offering that supports ground-breaking transformation in how companies and organizations transition traditional vehicles to electric and in how they can develop and manage the charging infrastructure to support them.
“As the CEO of GoWithFlow, Jane is at the forefront of worldwide adoption, fleet electrification and charging management,” said Ade Thomas, founder of Green.TV and co-founder of the Decarbonisation Summit. “In the two years since its launch as a commercial startup, GoWithFlow has built its way to the top of the sustainability sector. This new voice has some big things to say.”
The Decarbonisation Summit will be both live, at the Glasgow headquarters of SSE, and virtual. Speakers from COP26 will be on stage, in a set piece digital studio. International speakers will join the Decarbonisation Summit, virtually. Click here for free tickets to join online.
