These are all words that describe the WRISE network. The list could go on, but the truth behind each of these words is that this is a phenomenal community.

We wish sometimes that everyone could see it through our eyes – to be surrounded by amazing women – to travel the country meeting women and men who all care deeply about the transition to a renewable energy future.

And all this during what could not be a more fascinating time – the conversations around women in the workplace and climate change are BOTH a significant part of the mix of our current cultural consciousness. The challenges can seem heavy and daunting but in that kind of space the opportunities are abundant.

The success of renewable energy and the ability to address these challenges depends on our bringing together and retaining as many great minds, different backgrounds, and varied perspectives as possible. An important part of that is increasing the number of women at all levels of the renewable energy workforce. Research and reports from MIT and Catalyst show that having more women on teams is correlated with better decision making and improved financial performance.

WRISE is here because we believe that a diversified workforce is a strategic key to building a robust renewable energy economy.
