Event description

Description

Here at Women Energy Associates (WEA), we recognize that women are natural-born leaders. Studies have shown that the female brain is more optimized for communication skills and emotional intelligence as well as for combining analytical and intuitive thinking. For this (re-scheduled) event, we’ve convened a panel of women who have leveraged these strengths to start their own successful and growing businesses. This event will inspire you and leave you feeling fired up, ready to achieve incredible things!

During her four years at CLEAResult, Lauren held key executive roles including Board member, Senior Vice President of the California and Midwest Region, and Senior Vice President of National Policy and Regulatory Relations. Her extensive industry experience and credibility, along with strong leadership skills, helped CLEAResult grow to more than triple its size in a four-year period.

Cyane Dandridge is the Founder and Executive Director of Strategic Energy Innovations (SEI), as well as the School of the Environmental Leadership (SEL). Over her 30 plus years of experience, Cyane has seen the big picture of how communities lack access to energy efficiency services, clean technology, and real-world sustainability pathways. After receiving her M.S. in Building Technology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cyane utilized her entrepreneurship and knowledge of innovation in the built environment to bring climate solutions to the community level. By connecting students, residents, government officials, and the workforce in the design process of sustainability programs, she believes we can better pinpoint opportunities for communities to reach their goals. With so many groups working toward our climate future, Cyane is excited for the potential our youth and communities have to create an environmentally responsible world.
