Rejoice Ntiriwaa Ossei-Bremang

Science Communicator and Researcher, Cape Coast Technical University

Rejoice Ntiriwaa Ossei-Bremang a science communicator and researcher who is currently working at the Cape Coast Technical University. She has several years of grassroot experience in the clean cooking sector. As an enthusiast of modern energy cooking services (MECS), Rejoice envisions a world where everyone, especially women and girls, have access to clean and affordable energy, and climate change is no longer a threat to all ecosystems. She does this through research and advocacy.  Her research examines the connections between clean energy access, environmental governance, and climate change. She believes that because women understand their problems better, they are the best people to provide solutions. As a result, Ing. Ossei-Bremang leaves the confines of the classroom and laboratories on a regular basis to educate women, especially rural women within small-scale food processing enterprises about the importance of MECS and its role in the overall energy transition.

Fearless Leadership: Women Building a Better World

Women are the driving force behind the clean cooking transition – feeding their families, working in sales, leading enterprises, implementing policy and structuring finance. They spark innovation despite all odds, they persist in the face of obstacles and insist on building a better future for all.

For too long the conversation around gender and clean cooking has focused on women as victims – suffering the disproportionate impacts of poor health and safety – or merely as passive beneficiaries, receiving improved solutions delivered by well-meaning donors. But this historic narrative does not reflect reality.

Accelerating access to clean cooking is a critical tool for empowering women and advancing gender equality. Women are essential to the widespread adoption and use of clean cooking solutions. Their agency as household decision makers and consumers should not be underestimated. Their involvement as employees & entrepreneurs helps businesses thrive. Their leadership in policy and finance is essential to achieving progress at scale.

This session will delve into the stories and experiences of women working across the clean cooking ecosystem – as policy makers, entrepreneurs and investors – discussing the unique issues impacting women and how we can ensure that women have equal opportunities to lead, participate in and benefit from a just and inclusive energy transition.
