Resources for Women Looking for Green Jobs

Below are some additional resources on women and green jobs:
  • The Green Economy Post, 10 Active Networking Groups for Women Pursuing Sustainable Energy and Environmental Careers - Networking is considered one of the most valuable strategies for ensuring career success and often, the most effective ways to network is through professionals groups. See the link above for a list of active networking groups for women pursuing sustainable energy and environmental careers.
  • Women’s Economic Security Campaign – Creating Opportunity for Low-Income Women in the Green Economy - The first in a series of publications focusing on job creation, training and supports for low-income women.
  • The Pathways Advancing Career Training Act (HR 2074) provides grants to states with approved plans for programs that provide preparatory and supportive services, information on career and technical education, training, pre-apprenticeship assistance, and related services, including tuition assistance, to single parents and displaced homemakers and individuals pursuing nontraditional training and employment in fields where individuals from one gender compose less than 25% of workers. Please contact your legislators, ask them to support this bill and move it forward.
