What sets U2030 apart is that it's not just a networking hub for C-level executives; it’s a comprehensive support system for directors and managers aspiring to learn and grow their careers. Unlike traditional events that leverage lecture-based meeting designs with extremely large passive audiences, U2030 fosters an engaging, intimate, and collaborative environment. At U2030 every attendee is an active participant, gaining opportunities to expand their networks, enhance their leadership skills, improve their speaking abilities, and learn new tools for inspiring their teams and improving their businesses . U2030 seeks to elevate women in the utility industry through a focus on inclusivity and belonging at all of their events, and is one of the first to have a women-only award program, the Women Who SPARK Award and gala, during the U2030 Annual SPARK Meeting. U2030 is truly a place where all levels of leadership can grow and thrive together.”

The Utility 2030 Collaborative has a vibrant and dedicated group of participants whose passion for excellence, knowledge, and collaboration truly shines through. My mind is already racing to find ways to improve Oracle’s involvement and contribution to U2030. Thank you for your partnership and for inviting me to participate in the U2030 Futures-Think-a-Thon.

“Being a part of U2030 has been an enriching experience for BGE. The collective wealth of knowledge of the members has been invaluable. The best part of U2030 is the innovative ways teams are exposed to new concepts, hand-on learning experiences, and industry best practices. Through U2030, BGE team members have met a variety of industry experts. I highly recommend U2030 to any utility looking to elevate their performance and impact."
