In this week’s episode of the Energy Perspectives Podcast – powered by the Guyana Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo – we highlight the work of the Centre for Local Business Development (CLBD). In an interview with the CEO of the Guyana Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo, Kiana Wilburg, the Centre’s Director, Dr Natasha Gaskin-Peters underscores the importance of women in the energy landscape. Additionally, the economist shares key details on the work of the CLDB in preparing women for the opportunities that abound in the world’s fastest-growing economy. With Guyana in need of over 53,000 workers to support booming development in five sectors, including health and oil and gas, Dr Gaskin-Peters urges authorities to look to women to fill these gaps.
