According to 90% of solar employees surveyed, by the Solar Foundation last year, formal and informal mentorship is critical to advancement. Yet only 37% of clean energy companies specifically offer mentorship programs. Nextracker is one such company that offers a robust mentorship program for women, people of color & lower-income residents in order to facilitate greater diversity, equity & inclusion within the clean energy industry. Catherine McLean, Founder and CEO of Dylan Green, recently spoke with Dan Shugar, CEO of Nextracker, about this program, including the partnership with Women in Cleantech & Sustainability & Girls Inc.
In the interview, they discussed Nextracker’s involvement in the recently launched, ambitious Renewables Forward diversity, equity & inclusion initiative alongside Sol Systems, Generate, SEIA, Volt Energy, Cypress Creek Renewables, New Columbia Solar, Nautilus Solar, Mosaic, EDF Renewables & the Solar Foundation.
