Women of Color Revolutionizing the Energy System with their Careers

DATE & TIME: Monday, January 30, 2023 from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET

Our voices have the capacity to rebuild infrastructure where we need it most. Our voices have the power to demand justice, equity, inclusion, belonging, and access for people of color in energy policy and initiatives. We need to center diverse perspectives in the just transition to clean energy. 

There has been a disconnect between our communities and the governments, organizations and companies that should serve us. We need the voices of historically excluded people to rebuild connections, create accountability, and prioritize accessibility to all our communities. 

Join Green 2.0 and Energy Allies to learn from the expertise of women of color leading the clean energy transition. Alongside our communities, we’re working to build a new path for renewables that creates a more equitable energy future.
