US Department of Energy (DOE) Minorities in Energy Initiative

DOE Minorities in Energy Initiative

The Minorities in Energy Initiative addresses the needs of underrepresented communities in the energy sector and aligns with President Obama’s agenda for engaging more Americans in energy and science, technology, engineering, and math fields. The Minorities in Energy Initiative, guided by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, seeks to create a substantive, sustainable model that connects diverse stakeholders together to address challenges and opportunities for minority engagement in energy economic participation, STEM education, and climate change. Currently, AISES CEO, Sarah EchoHawk is serving as an ambassador for the initiative. To learn more, go to: http://energy.gov/diversity/services/minorities-energy-initiative
