JOBS: Women and Green Jobs

Dispatched by the SSC Team

Last month Public Policy Associates, Inc. and Wider Opportunities for Women published A Woman’s Guide to Green Jobs: Green Jobs Training fact sheet, and a presentation for the DOL, highlighting opportunities for professional growth in our post-stimulus economy.  The report sites that for every $1 million spent on clean energy, about 16.7 jobs are created.  Based on ARRA’s investment in energy efficiency and renewables, that’s almost 500,000 new jobs.  The fact sheet breaks down opportunities by college degree and alternative skills, and addresses several obstacles including the challenge of the work/life balance and female under-representation in the energy sector.  Click below to view:
