Women in Solar Energy – The purpose of the WISE forum is to inspire women to become more technically involved in solar, not just peripheral to it. It’s easy for us to talk about what we do, but this isn’t a forum to just talk about our jobs, but about how we got where we are and the obstacles and barriers that we’ve come up against and broke through or just moved out of the way to continue on our path. this is a forum for accomplished women to share lessons learned and heartfelt stories about their lives. It is the story about the journey. The forum will be followed by a lunch and networking event.
Colorado Spotlight Session – Join us for a session highlighting all of the wonderful actions people and organizations are taking around the state of Colorado to implement sustainable actions and renewable energy policy.
Social/Environmental Justice Keynote – Building on the conference theme of “Empowering a Sustainable Future,” this session focuses on the topics of racism and social justice as they intersect with energy in general and renewable energy in particular. People in marginalized communities have often borne the burden of environmental exploitation and energy injustice in the name of unrestrained development and technical advancement. Here, the discussion is on these problem areas and on a vision of paths forward, how we can work together to ensure that all communities benefit from the clean energy transition, and how empowering a sustainable future can bring benefit to everyone without harming the most vulnerable among us. Each speaker presentation will be 20 minutes, and will allow questions in the final few minutes.
Student and Emerging Professional Engagement – Emerging Professionals Forum will feature young professionals and their stories of success followed by a lunch and networking event.
Industry Roundtable – All are welcome to join Industry Round Table Luncheon where sponsors will each give a five-minute pitch for their business or offering, along with an insightful discussion on renewable energy advances to expedite the energy transition. Join us as we flip the script!
