CWEEL International Women’s Day Panel Discussion: Empowering Women in the Green Economy
The impacts of climate change are being felt with increasing intensity and frequency, making the transition to a green economy all the more urgent. This shift requires upskilling and reskilling the workforce as well as transforming how we educate and train the next generation. One projection pegs the number of new jobs created by the green economy at 24 million globally. This represents a tremendous opportunity for women to move into both emerging and mainstream jobs. However, if the shift into the green economy is not executed thoughtfully, using a gender lens, women may find themselves running into barriers that may limit their full access to green jobs in the coming years. This panel of three women leaders in the energy and environment space will look at the current situation, what opportunities exist for women, what barriers/challenges women face or could potentially face in accessing these opportunities, and what actions should be taken across various domains for an inclusive green economy.
The Council on Women in Energy & Environmental Leadership (CWEEL) is an AEE membership division that supports career development for women across the energy industry. This includes mentoring, networking, and scholarships for aspiring women to pursue technical education and careers in the energy and environmental fields. CWEEL is just one-way AEE supports a greater diversity of experience, talent, and ideas across our industry.

Workforce Development and Sustainability: Are entry-level job seekers aligned with hiring firms and managers?
To many in the sustainability industry, entry-level employees’ career paths appear broad and diverse. A wide range of position types benefit from different and unique skill sets. To those graduating from high school, community college, or university, the picture may not be so clear – or so promising. This interactive presentation will review and summarize recent literature regarding workforce development initiatives in the sustainability industry to better understand the entry-level employment needs of the energy transition economy from the perspective of hiring entities and prospective employees. This review will benefit those on both sides of the hiring process, and aims to answer the following questions:
• Are aspiring sustainability job-seekers fully aware of the range of employment opportunities? If not, what are the information asymmetries?
• Are there specific job criteria that make sustainability jobs more or less attractive to job seekers, and to what degree are these criteria met in entry-level jobs?
• Can employers find and recruit job seekers with appropriate skill sets? If not, where are the most significant skill gaps, and how can they be closed?
• To what degree do cultural or generational factors impact hiring for sustainability positions?
• How does a career path in sustainability compare with other industries that job seekers may be pursuing, and what factors are most important in that comparison?
