Energy Workforce & Community Participation in the New Energy Economy
This event has passed.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law represents a once-in-a-generation investment that can—with careful thought and attention to implementation—accelerate the clean energy transition and grow the economy and jobs sustainably and equitably. Additionally, the Biden administration has set an executive order goal of delivering 40% of the overall benefits of relevant federal investments to disadvantaged communities, but delivering on the promise of the Justice40 initiative requires long-term commitment and whole-of-government coordination.
The American Association of Blacks in Energy and the Bipartisan Policy Center will host a virtual public event with experts to share their experiences and ideas for ensuring these new federal infrastructure investments create direct value and economic opportunity in communities, support the build-out of an inclusive workforce, address disproportionate energy burdens, and leverage public-private collaboration.
