Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

SEIA values diversity, inclusion and equity within our organization and the promotion of these values across the solar industry. We define diversity to include — but not be limited to — difference by race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, culture, ability, class, employment level, and political identity. SEIA’s definition of diversity is evolving and subject to expansion.

At SEIA, we believe that a diverse workforce creates a more resilient organization - one that supports a strong, equitable solar industry. SEIA envisions an industry that is committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity at all levels. We aim to achieve this by encouraging openness and transparency about diversity issues and progress. We are developing strategies, programs, and tools that seek to equalize opportunities within SEIA and allow for discussing and sharing best practices within the solar industry as a whole.

#DiversityChallenge

SEIA has launched a Diversity Challenge - an effort to encourage our own members, the energy industry more broadly and ultimately all American workplaces to make diversity and inclusion a core part of their cultural identity. Many organizations are well ahead of us, and we want to learn from them. SEIA president & CEO Abigail Ross Hopper has made diversity and inclusion one of her top priorities, in part because it is well understood that a diverse workplace is a more successful workplace.
