Green Workforce Connect: A New Hub for Clean Energy Job Growth Webinar

Tune in to this webinar to learn about Green Workforce Connect as well as to hear from guest speakers regarding best practices for recruiting diverse talent.

Weatherization jobs are vital for our transition to a clean energy future, yet employers face a continual struggle to fill their open positions. These hiring challenges are shared by employers in solar, wind, and other clean energy sectors. With support from the U.S. Department of Energy and a nationwide coalition of partners, IREC is developing a vast array of new resources to help employers recruit effectively and increase awareness of the benefits of clean energy careers. These recruitment materials will help the Weatherization Assistance Program hire a new generation of home energy professionals, including individuals from underrepresented communities.

The central hub of this work is Green Workforce Connect, a new platform that connects job seekers and contractors to weatherization employers, and will expand to be a resource for other clean energy technologies.
