COVID-19 and Women’s Energy Entrepreneurship

(New York)

Sustainable Energy for All, the Clean Cooking Alliance, ENERGIA, and members of the People-Centered Accelerator are taking an active role to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting women entrepreneurs in the sustainable energy sector.

As a first step, they are organizing a “COVID-19 and Women’s Energy Entrepreneurship” webinar to create a virtual space for entrepreneurs in these unprecedented times to share their stories. Focused on elevating voices from the field, this webinar will showcase the experiences of entrepreneurs across the sector, unpacking insights on how this pandemic is impacting their company operations, customers, and communities. As women entrepreneurs are adjusting, bearing additional responsibilities due to the nature of their businesses, it is critical to recognize the invaluable, creative contributions and perspectives that women entrepreneurs can provide in support of energy delivery services during this pandemic.
