GRID Alternatives and WRISE are partnering again this year for the Rising Women SPI fellowship program to give aspiring solar professionals from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to participate in North America’s largest solar trade show – Solar Power International (SPI) – attending sessions, viewing state-of-the-art technology, meeting women and men in the renewable energy field, and connecting with employers about potential internships or permanent positions. The program, part of GRID and WRISE’s workforce diversity initiatives, is aimed at women training for careers in installation and design as well as college and graduate students studying renewable energy and related fields.
Selected participants will receive free conference registration, travel to and from the conference, housing during their stay and supported opportunities for networking to make the most out of the experience.
SPI 2019 will be held in Salt Lake City, UT from September 23-26.
