Join the National Conversation on Minorities in Energy: Announcing National Roundtables

Hispanics In Energy, in collaboration with the American Association of Blacks In Energy and the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, plans a gathering of key stakeholder leaders in a series of roundtables across the country to discuss how to meet the job demands of the expanding energy industry, particularly through the minority workforce. 

Join the conversation at any of our upcoming roundtables and hear from representatives from key stakeholder groups on the reasons communities, workforce development organizations, academic institutions, government, labor and business leaders must act swiftly and become engaged.
