At SEIA, we believe that a diverse workforce creates a more resilient organization - one that supports a strong, equitable solar industry. SEIA envisions an industry that is committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity at all levels. We aim to achieve this by encouraging openness and transparency about diversity issues and progress. We are developing strategies, programs, and tools that seek to equalize opportunities within SEIA and allow for discussing and sharing best practices within the solar industry as a whole.
SEIA has launched a Diversity Challenge - an effort to encourage our own members, the energy industry more broadly and ultimately all American workplaces to make diversity and inclusion a core part of their cultural identity. Many organizations are well ahead of us, and we want to learn from them. SEIA president & CEO Abigail Ross Hopper has made diversity and inclusion one of her top priorities, in part because it is well understood that a diverse workplace is a more successful workplace.
