KenGen runs Pink Energy, an initiative to uplift the status of women within the company. It was launched in November 2016 and has gone a long way in creating change and enhancing the potential of women in the company.
Pink Energy is anchored on three pillars: Personal development and empowerment; creating a conducive work environment and creating gender awareness.
“The award goes to show the efforts the company has put in place over the years, in instituting gender mainstreaming,” KenGen wrote in a tweet.
"Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women." Maya Angelou.
