Sol Systems will sponsor the Women in Solar Energy (WISE) Intersolar Breakfast, which will take place on Tuesday, July 14 at the Intercontinental Hotel in San Francisco. WISE is the solar industry’s only 501(c)3 non-profit membership association dedicated to the advancement of women in the solar energy industry.
During the breakfast, which is included in the official Intersolar program schedule, successful women in the solar industry will share their stories and discuss ways that solar companies can work toward a more diverse workforce.
Sara Rafalson, Senior Associate at Sol Systems, serves in a volunteer capacity as President of WISE and will deliver opening remarks at the breakfast. Sol Systems’ Stephanie Smith (COO), Rebecca Tilbrook (Project Engineer), and Jessica Cowan (Office Manager & Special Projects) will also be in attendance.
Diversity is at the heart of Sol Systems, where 36 percent of the team is comprised of women, as compared to 21.6% of the solar workforce at large. In addition to their support of Women in Solar Energy, the women of Sol host monthly brown bag lunches focusing on professional development; the men of Sol are also included.
Interested in meeting up with Sol Systems at the WISE Intersolar breakfast? RSVP today; seats are limited.
