WCEE’s Lunch & Learn Series presents

 

A Global to Hyper-Local Look at Clean Energy Jobs:

Career Pathways & Markets, Diversity & Empowerment Trends,

& Innovative Business Models Accelerating Change

 

Recently, there has been a boom in clean energy and, with costs decreasing and adoption accelerating, the impact on jobs has been significant. U.S. solar and wind jobs are growing 12x faster than their peer average; with the fastest growing single profession being wind turbine technician, and an increase to over 260,000 solar workers in the U.S. alone last year. Join a great WCEE panel to hear more about where growth is happening and what skills are needed; how it’s empowering women and communities, and how innovative business models are helping it scale. Our speakers will provide a range of private sector to non-profit perspectives on the following topics and encourage the audience to dive in and discuss.

 

Speaker and Topics:

  • Molly Bauch, Accenture Clean Tech – US landscape of clean tech: trending jobs, needed skills, & hot markets
  • Tenley Dalstrom (Contributor to the SE for All Accelerator for Gender Equality, Social Inclusion and Women's Empowerment in the Sustainable Energy Sector) – Global landscape of clean tech for women: Diversity & empowerment trends
  • Nicole Steele (GRID Alternatives, Mid-Atlantic Director) – Local landscape for solar, examples of public-private partnership & workforce development accelerators
