TUEWAS Women Expert Database

The TUEWAS Women Expert database is a crowd-sourced database of women experts working in transport, energy, water, environment/climate, and urbanism.

As women are notoriously underrepresented in Asian scientific conferences and policy events, as well as consultancy work, especially those not organised by international organisations; their voices are not being heard sufficiently. Therefore, the objective of the initiative is to have a platform for women working on Transport, Energy, Environment, Urbanism and Water as well as Gender in the region. This is intended to increase women participation in the discourse on sustainable development in the TUEWAS sectors and to serve as a platform for women experts from additional sectors, such as biodiversity and ecosystems management.

Asia is filled with outstanding women professionals, and our database aims to showcase women’s talent, connects experts and decision makers, and offers event organisers a valuable tool to find speakers and disrupt the cycle of men-dominated events.

Here we explain you how to register in the database.

The goal of the TUEWAS Women Experts Database is:

  • Creating an open database accessible to all women experts and event organiser
  • Amplifying the voices of women experts in Asia in sustainable development discussions
  • Promoting equality and diversity in conferences, panels, expert talks, media appearances, advisory committees, and management boards

We encourage you to register in the database and share it with interested colleagues working in the transport sector!
