Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The team at RE+ strives to create an experience that embraces, recognizes, and celebrates the value of diversity and inclusion in all areas of the energy industry. Our programming showcases thought-leading content related to renewable energy, and we also strive to represent and highlight all parts of the industry in regards to race, ethnicity, gender, and age. Our goal is to ensure that, holistically, RE+ Events are sustainable, diverse, and forward-looking events for the industry.

Our partners and vendors are committed to the promotion of diversity & inclusion

Community Engagement

This year at RE+ we are collaborating with multicultural organizations across the renewable energy landscape to host gatherings supporting BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and Veteran community engagement, culminating in our first ever Diversity in Clean Energy Reception. Please join us and connect with fellow colleagues that embrace and support diversity, equity, inclusion, and allyship in the renewable energy industry.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We have made a commitment to ensure that all educational programs provided by RE+ Events must represent the diversity that the industry values and aspires to recognize. Industry panels, webinars, and education sessions that lack diversity do not meet the standards of our organizations and will not be confirmed until we have enough participants that rightfully represent the renewable energy industry.

RE+ Events, Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), and Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) are committed to ensuring that every person has a place in the future of the renewable energy industry. We believe that having a diverse workforce creates a more resilient organization - one that supports a strong, equitable solar industry.  We envision an industry that is committed to fostering a culture of inclusiveness at all levels.
