We Want to Educate More Solar Women
Women are underrepresented in the solar industry (19%) and in our online solar courses (6%). We want that to change. We’ve designated this space specifically for solar women for 3 reasons:
1. Elevate the Conversation:
We want to elevate the conversation to get more women working in the solar industry and to complement great initiatives already happening in the industry.
2. Educate More Women in Solar:
We hope that the solar women we feature provide new insights for women considering the field of solar (solar jobs are annually growing by 20%). We also hope to boost the number of women enrolling in our courses. To-date, less than 6% of our solar students have been women. We don’t like that statistic. We want to teach more women!
3. Create a More Diverse and Equitable Industry:
Through engaging more women in conversations about solar and providing high-quality learning opportunities, we hope to contribute to a more level playing field for women looking to enter or advance within the solar industry.
