U.S. Solar Industry Diversity Study 2019
The U.S. Solar Industry Diversity Study 2019 is an in-depth look at diversity, inclusion, and equity in the solar industry. It includes new data on wages, advancement, and career pathways for women and people of color.
This study was released by The Solar Foundation in partnership with the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). It looks at diversity and inclusion strategies now in place at solar firms, and it identifies ways the industry can improve.
Today, leaders in solar are making diversity and inclusion a priority. This rapidly growing industry now employs 242,000 Americans, and these job opportunities should be accessible to everyone. As a companion to this study, The Solar Foundation and SEIA have also released a new best practices guide to help companies advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
