The MIT Energy Initiative and the US Department of Energy hosted an invitation-only Women in Clean Energy Symposium on September 28, 2012. This symposium – for leaders who have helped advance the careers of women in clean energy, academics, other experts in clean energy, and students who are studying clean energy disciplines – will help lay the foundation for a broader, continuing effort to enable and support the careers of women in clean energy.
