The Clean Energy Council is proud to announce its fourth annual Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Scholarship has been awarded to Allison Hawke, Chief Operating Officer at ESCO Pacific. Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton said Ms Hawke was a shining example of the strong leadership and dedication displayed by women in the clean energy industry. “With an extensive career working for companies such as ESCO Pacific, CNC and ACCIONA and an obvious passion for this sector, Allison is the embodiment of the type of individual this opportunity is designed to recognize and support,” Mr Thornton said. “Allison has had a key role in developments like the Ross River and Finley Solar Farms, as well as making a major contribution to the Clean Energy Council’s Solar Directorate which she currently chairs. She has also had a direct influence on the industry’s involvement in the draft solar farm planning guidelines both in Queensland and Victoria.” “It’s opportunities like this scholarship and the wider Women in Renewables initiative that push the industry to do better and be better when it comes to gender diversity. This scholarship helps us work towards removing the glass ceiling altogether and achieving better outcomes for the industry as a whole,” Ms Hawke said.
