BECC Webinar: Leaving No One Behind in the Energy Transition
Event Description

The disparities that minority communities have experienced due to institutional racism and environmental injustices have not only contributed to the health decline of residents in these communities, but also wealth and employment gaps. Energy has been one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, but as the industry transitions it must strengthen its racial diversity. According to the latest U.S. Energy and Employment Report, while there were job losses in the industry during the pandemic, there is a steady growth in employment in wind energy, battery storage, and hybrid and electric vehicles. Increased work in energy efficiency and electrification--together with retirements--have created a need for more skilled workers. Investing in programming and uplifting communities with workforce development initiatives can create a monumental impact as we transition to a clean energy future.

In this webinar, participants will explore how engaging with disadvantaged and environmental justice communities though investments and workforce development can right some of the wrongs of systemic racism and environmental injustice in energy while bringing economic stability, empowerment, and wealth.
