Beth Zonis, Northeast Regional Director, Cleantech Open Northeast/NECEC join's the line up of industry professionals participating in UP's March 2nd Manufacturing, Aerospace & Utilities/CleanTech Day as part of Return-to-Work Week for Women.
Cleantech Open Northeast has been improving their diversity, equity and inclusion over the last few years. In 2020, NECEC’s Cleantech Open Northeast had one of its most diverse cohorts yet, with the majority of the startups in last year’s cohort (63%) led by women, women of color, and people of color. We hope to continue that trend by partnering with groups like The National Society of Black Engineers, The American Association of Blacks in Energy and Browning the Greenspace to help recruit and attract a more diverse cohort of startups, mentors, investors, volunteers, and sponsors to the accelerator in 2021. In addition, they will include training for the 2021 Cleantech Open Northeast cohort on the value of building a diverse team and on best practices to build a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
This week's events will take place from March 1-5 at 10am every morning.
