Women inclusion in providing access to sustainable energy
Last quarter has warranted a lot to celebrate about. From record sales numbers, new partnerships, and now women who have shown exemplary performances in their departments. Women make up 37% of Sistema.bio’s Kenya staff, a move that was driven by a deliberate decision to ensure female participation in providing access to energy across Kenya and around the world. Today we shed light on Veronica Cherono – a mother and Sistema.bio technician.
Veronica joined Sistema.bio in February 2018, becoming the first female technician to break the norm by working in a male dominated job at Sistema.bio Kenya. With prior working experience at the National Youth Service, it was easy for her to adapt and be the pacesetter for the now 21% female technicians in the company. Today, she has installed over 60 digesters and trained new technicians (male and female).
