The Clean Energy Economy continues to build momentum in Southwestern PA. But is our region positioned to meet the demands for clean energy workers with a diverse and appropriately trained workforce?  Are these jobs apparent and visible in our workforce system?

Join the Keystone Energy Efficiency Alliance, Sustainable Pittsburgh, and E2 for a Workforce Development Leadership Circle event as we tackle this challenge. Hear about how a neighboring region is finding success, and what our community groups, prospective workers, training and workforce development agencies, employers, and government officials are saying about the challenges. Help to ignite solutions at this half-day workshop, which will focus on overcoming fragmentation by building fresh ideas, connections, and coordination to achieve our goal.
