Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy (WRISE) is a national nonprofit working across the renewable energy economy with a broad purpose – to change our energy future through the collective power of community. Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a sustainable and equitable energy future by igniting the collective power of community.
Through building Community, promoting Education, and cultivating Leadership, WRISE works to recruit, retain, advance and inspire systemically excluded communities in pursuing a sustainable and equitable future. WRISE was first established as Women of Wind Energy (WoWE) in 2005, and rebranded in May 2017.
Our vast network includes our small but mighty team, our distinguished Board of Directors, our dedicated chapter leaders, and our amazing members – including our national committee leaders and volunteers who work to create WRISE events across the country.
WRISE’s network continues to grow with chapters across the United States and Canada. Hosting a variety of educational and networking events, WRISE local chapters keep members connected to each other and their local communities throughout the year.
Corporate Partners are integral to WRISE’s mission, success, and growth. The support of corporate partners allows WRISE programming to have greater reach and impact to ignite the collective power of community towards a more equitable energy future.
