Take Charge Campaign Details
The GOAL: increasing the number of women who think about energy and activate interest in supporting renewables.
The BACKGROUND: We as WoWE have been working hard to bring more women into the renewable energy field and retain and advance the women that are already involved, but no matter how hard we work it won't be enough in the end if we don't have a robust healthy growing renewable energy economy. It is time to take the next step and leverage the expertise around our network to help lift the voices of all women and "take charge" - leading the path forward toward a renewable energy future for generations to come.
We want to use the funds raised to
- develop tools, trainings and resources for our members to get out in the world and talk about renewable energy, engage their communities and particularly the women and girls of their communities to help build a strong cumulative voice demanding a renewable energy future.
- facilitate collaborations with women's organizations that want to actively support renewable energy but may not have access to the expertise that we can provide from within our membership
- use our national visibility and broad network to make sure women's voices and stories are making their way into critical local, regional, and national energy conversations
