    Women On The WRise In Wind

    Women look to close renewable energy’s employment gender gap; Women make up about a third of U.S. wind and solar energy jobs, higher than other technology fields.

    Kari Lydersen, June 5, 2018 (Energy News Network)

    “…WRISE (Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy) hopes [to] increase representation of women in the wind energy field…A 2017 Department of Energy employment report found that women make up 32 percent of the wind industry workforce, which it found had a total 102,000 jobs. Women also made up 32 percent of the solar energy workforce. Those numbers are higher than some other tech industries; one recent report found women hold less than 20 percent of U.S. tech jobs overall…[F]ive years ago,] another study showed only about 20 to 25 percent of wind industry jobs were held by women…The DOE report found similar proportions of women in other energy fields including biofuels, coal and combined heat and power…Energy efficiency and petroleum fuels each had about a quarter of jobs filled by women. Racial and ethnic minority women are likely even more under-represented…WRISE has an initiative called “Find Her Keep Her: Recruiting and Retaining Women across Renewable Energy” that is aimed at showing corporations how to bring women into their workforce…” click here for more
