Solar Ready Vets: Recruiting and Retaining Military Talent in the Solar Workforce
Wednesday, October 21, 2020
4:00 PM – 4:20 PM EDT
The solar industry stands to benefit from a more diverse, robust and resilient workforce as we continue to emerge from COVID19 disruptions and expand our industry’s role as a mainstream part of the American energy sector. Veterans and transitioning service members have strong leadership experience and critical thinking skills that make them outstanding candidates for solar careers in today’s fast-changing world.
This session will inform solar companies about how they can engage with the U.S. Department of Energy funded Solar Ready Vets Network and the Solar Ready Vets Corporate Fellowship Program, which are expanding and strengthening a nationwide pipeline of transitioning military service members and veterans into technical and leadership roles in the American solar workforce.
