The WRISE Speakers Bureau supports our organizational mission and serves to amplify and project new voices across the renewable industry and beyond. This new program will showcase the expertise of women across the renewable energy spectrum, from wind/solar to biomass and from R&D to acquisitions.

 

The WRISE Speakers Bureau is a public, searchable database of outstanding women and individuals of underrepresented genders who are qualified and willing to publicly, speak, present and engage on renewable energy topics.

This Speakers Bureau supports our organizational mission and promotes underrepresented voices across the renewable energy industry in North America. It is essential to include everyone in all types of renewable energy and sustainability discussions.  

Why the WRISE Speakers Bureau Matters 

Speaker diversity benefits the individuals who take the stage and also the audience, who learn from a variety of perspectives. It opens the door for more underrepresented voices across the renewable energy industry in the future; seeing individuals with diverse perspectives and backgrounds presented as role models helps to inspire those who want to add their voices to the conversation.
