The launch of Women in Climate Tech (WiCT) was announced today by the group’s Steering Committee. The organization’s mission is to empower and amplify the voices of women working in this burgeoning industry and to grow the share of females represented who will work on this issue for generations to come.
The launch comes at a time of growing interest in climate tech. Venture funding in the industry has increased by 3750% in six years according to “The State of Climate Tech 2020” by PwC. In addition, stimulus incentives coupled with other regulatory moves expected in the coming months will further accelerate sector growth.
