Green Economy Guide for Women
The report was produced to support Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis’s vision of “Good Jobs for Everyone.” The green jobs guide is designed to help women learn about the opportunities available in the renewable energy space, which they may not have previously considered.
The guide also provides vulnerable women a pathway to higher paying jobs, and serves as a tool to help fight job segregation. It offers women resources and information they need to enter and succeed in jobs in the emerging green economy. The guide was created to help women at all stages of their careers — whether they are newly entering the workforce, transitioning to new careers, or returning to the workforce — identify and take advantage of opportunities in the clean energy economy.
The guide will also help training providers, educators, counselors, and other workforce development professionals promote the recruitment and retention of women in green career paths.
