Podcast episode: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Renewables Industry

Listen to the episode from Renewable Energy SmartPod.

The social justice movement that gathered momentum in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder forced many industries, including renewables, to take a long, hard look at their diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.  This episode features Kenneth Labeja, the co-founder and CFO of Triple Oak Power, and Dareem David, director of finance at Primergy Solar, discussing the progress the industry has made on DEI initiatives (4:46 and 16:25) and difficult circumstances they’ve experienced as Black men in renewables (8:30). They also look at ways the renewables industry can flex its financial clout to drive change (19:29) and diversify its ranks of younger talent and experienced professionals (22:26).
