NESEA’s mission is to advance the adoption of sustainable energy practices in the built environment by cultivating a community where practitioners share, collaborate and learn. We believe that this community is the strongest when we actively prepare new professionals for future leadership opportunities. As a result, one of the main goals of our new strategic plan is to find ways to welcome practitioners from all backgrounds who are early in their careers.
With NESEA's mission and strategic plan in mind, we are pleased to welcome our keynote moderator, Dr. Tamika Jacques, the Director of Workforce Development at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center. Dr. Jacques has dedicated her career to workforce development initiatives that engage emerging professionals and foster inclusivity in our industry. Dr. Jacques will lead a panel that will provide data about the state of our industry, share strategies for effectively engaging and elevating the work of emerging and mid-career professionals, and present approaches for soliciting new stakeholders.
You will leave this session feeling reinvigorated in your work and fired up to join others in fostering a community of practitioners that is vibrant, resilient, and ready to transform our built environment.
