WoWE is an incredible organization doing very important work. To reach a sustainable energy future, we need to increase the number of educated workers with the skill sets to propel clean energy technologies forward. Excluding or limiting over 50% of our workforce because of their gender limits progress towards a clean energy future. WoWE provides great opportunities and support for women in the field of wind energy - a traditionally male-dominated field.

As an educator in this very male-dominated field, it is encouraging to see a Woman's organization dedicated to the industry. They not only have a social structure for employees, they work with young women to encourage STEM studies and knowledge. This organization is helping to increase diversity in the industry.

WoWE is a fantastic organization that promotes women in the wind industry, as well as inspiring young women to be involved in STEM fields. Members range from turbine techs and construction workers to scientists and consultants to executives at some of the top energy companies in the world. I am most proud of the Mentoring Program that the group hosts for young to mid-career women and the connection with KidWind, which teaches elementary school aged kids about the positive benefits of renewable energy.
