This is a virtual event

Please join Urban Environmentalists and the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN) for a "lunch & learn" conversation and Q&A with Dani Mahrer, GRID Alternatives' Development and Communications Manager.

GRID is beloved for its events where volunteers install solar panels on low-income housing - but now is your opportunity to learn about all their other great work! We’ll hear about GRID's groundbreaking non-profit programs in sustainable multifamily housing, community solar, shared clean mobility, workforce development, and more. Dani will also give us a deep dive on how GRID specifically addresses women's issues in its work, from getting more women into the industry to engaging in inclusive community outreach.

This event will take place via Zoom. All registered attendees will receive a link approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of the event.
