Grid Catalyst
Event Description

Join Grid Catalyst, the Center for Economic Inclusion, and Brown Venture Group for a discussion of the challenges and opportunities in addressing equity and access in energy innovation. Over the last year, Grid Catalyst has been working with the Center for Economic Inclusion on understanding the challenges that face diverse founders, how those might be unique to energy and climate sectors, and how we can take action that provides resources and pathways to diverse founders. The result of this work is encapsulated in the newly released Equity and Access report that will serve as the roadmap to our programming for years to come.

Saroeun Earm from the Center for Economic Inclusion and Dr. Chris Brooks from Brown Venture Group will explore the themes of this report and to consider how we can take meaningful and tangible action as a region to expand pathways for diverse founders in energy and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

For in-person attendees, please join a networking session prior to the panel to help strengthen and make new connections between sectors and in community for this important work.

For virtual attendees, please check your RSVP email for Zoom info. The Zoom broadcast will begin at 10 a.m. CST.
