Event Details

This month we are partnering with the Solar Business Festival for a panel on how to make the solar industry more inclusive, equitable, and diverse for our November 2018 Happy Hour.

The panel will examine barriers to systematically make businesses, nonprofits, and the industry more welcoming, inclusive and accountable spaces for underrepresented people. The speakers will examine why people of color, women, LBGTQ+ people, and others often remain excluded from businesses’ recruitment strategies and leadership development, and offer some best practices understanding and overcoming the root causes of employment inequity.

We are honored to hear from:

  • Rubén Cantú, Director of Inclusive Innovation and Entrepreneurship Division of Diversity and Community Engagement,
  • Jenn Goodwillie, Counsel at Counsel at EDP Renewables North America (EDPR), representing WRISE (Women in Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy), 
  • Stephanie Hawley, an Equity and Inclusion consultant and the Associate Vice President of the Office of Equity and Inclusion at Austin Community College, and 
  • Karen Magid, Director of Sustainability and STEM at Huston-Tillotson University. 

Please join us for this important and engaging conversation.

State Parking Garages can be found next to, behind and across from Scholz Garten. San Jacinto Blvd., 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and Trinity have parking garage entrances.
Although our happy hours are free and open to all, we hope you'll consider donating to Solar Austin.  Help us keep solar energy growing in the Austin area.  You can purchase a ticket to the happy hour or go to our website,, to donate and avoid fees.
