Who are WE
The Association of Women in the Energy Sector of Kosovo emerged as a result of the mCircle mentoring network established in 2016 for women in Kosovo’s energy sector institutions. AWESK was publicly launched in June 2017 with the support of the USAID “REPOWER-KOSOVO” project and such is the first and only civil society organization in Kosovo focusing on gender in the energy sector.
To date AWESK has more than 140 members, highly trained and educated professionals from a broad range of profiles, including: women engineers, IT, legal experts, administrators and HR, marketing and PR personnel, and academics from engineering and the social sciences.
AWESK’s goal is to advance gender diversity through mentoring, networking, skills development, and career development. It aims to help institutions identify concrete and implementable actions that will empower women in the energy industry for value and professional development.
AWESK members are committed to realizing the mission of the Association
AWESK members are committed to creating an inclusive energy sector
AWESK creates access and new opportunities for the inclusion and advancement of women in the energy sector

We are constantly on the move and implementing activities. At the same time we
are working to design the next project from which you can benefit or contribute to its implementation. There are several ways you can support us in fulfilling our mission.
The Association aims to advocate for gender-based policies and to positively influence the decision-making infrastructure so that women are represented as equals. Also, the Association is committed to the active involvement of women in improving the quality of life for the entire Kosovar society. This can be achieved through information and education campaigns about opportunities to make the change.
The Association takes pride of its professional members. Each of them is a success story that has contributed to shaping key energy institutions in the country. We have selected some of the members of AWESK and their profiles that present fragments of their careers in the energy sector in Kosovo. Also in our gallery, check out the invitation from AWESK members addressing girls to study in STEM subjects. And a statement of why our association is the most appropriate
to work with women and for women in the energy sector.
We have produced a booklet that summarizes the activity of the Association
in a single document.
