Hosted by the HBCU Community Development Action Coalition Clean Energy Initiative and the National Association of State Energy Officials
Discussion 3: The Role of Community Colleges and Two-Year Institutions in Energy Sector Workforce Development
Wednesday, April 13, 2022, 1:00-2:15 p.m. Eastern Time
A high-quality vocational or technical education can boost career prospects and expand the pipeline of diverse talent entering the clean energy workforce. In comparison to four-year institutions, community, vocational, technical, and other two-year institutions offer an affordable and accessible pathway into well-paying, skilled energy sector jobs. In this virtual discussion co-hosted by the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) and Historically Black Colleges and Universities Community Development Action Coalition (HBCU CDAC), join experts to learn about accessible academic and workforce development options that contribute to a robust, diverse, and inclusive energy sector workforce and the achievement of states’ economic development, energy, and equity policy goals.
NASEO’s State and Territory Energy Office Members and CDAC’s HBCU partners are especially encouraged to attend and contribute to this discussion. Please register in advance for this meeting here.
