Greentown Labs is hosting a free discussion online on September 29 about Equity in Green Jobs, which may contain some useful information (specifically, in bold below). Here’s the description:
We know the climate crisis and the fight for racial justice go hand in hand. The projected growth of the climatetech industry and its ability to train and employ people means that there is abundant potential to create wealth and jobs, especially for low-income communities and communities of color.
On Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 2:30 p.m. CT, hear from experts who will share how we can build toward a resilient, low-carbon future while simultaneously and rapidly expanding opportunities for women and people of color to economically benefit from and help drive the climatetech revolution.
The conversation will cover:
- The current state of Houston’s quickly evolving energy landscape
- Skills applicable to the energy transition
- Examples of comprehensive climatetech workforce development programs
- Incorporating equity into green jobs
