As the transition to a new energy economy continues, the workforce that supports and drives that economy will evolve, too. Houston’s role in this evolution will impact the success of the transition, but skills of our region’s residents and the job needs of new energy employers. The Partnership’s UpSkill Houston initiative is hosting a discussion on the clean energy workforce with stakeholders from the U.S. Department of Energy, as part of a larger tour of Houston’s energy transition ecosystem, and local leaders of this transition. Please join us for a conversation about what this evolution will look like and how we can succeed in this shift to a more diverse, equitable, inclusive and sustainable energy future. Speakers include: Lady Idos, Deputy Director and head of the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (ODEIA), U.S. Department of Energy Katie Mehnert, CEO and Founder, ALLY Energy Peter Beard, Senior Vice President of Regional Workforce Development, Greater Houston Partnership Bryant Black, Director of Regional Workforce Development, Greater Houston Partnership
