The Group Co-chairs want your input about the PLMA Women in Demand Management Interest Group, even if you are not a member or a woman. The survey at will take less than 3 minutes to complete. Individual responses are confidential. Please encourage your fellow PLMA members to respond to this survey. The survey results will be shared during the October 23 webcast.

According to the U.S. Dept. of Labor, women constitute only 21.4% of the utilities workforce. Join this Women in Demand Management Group Discussion to hear the results of our 2019 survey and discuss our priorities for 2020. All are welcome - we want your questions and suggestions, and are seeking volunteers to work with us on an expanded schedule of activities. This is the perfect time to get in on the action: our next session will be at the 40th PLMA Fall Conference in St. Petersburg.
