The Solar Foundation Press Release, Washington, D.C., May 6, 2019 – Solar companies are doing a better job of tracking employee demographics and generally provide positive work environments for their employees, but senior leadership in the industry lacks diversity and gaps remain in wages and job satisfaction, according to a comprehensive study by The Solar Foundation, in partnership with the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).

The two groups also today released a diversity and inclusion best practices guide to help companies and organizations within and beyond the solar industry build diversity and inclusion programs.

The reports were released during an event at the National Press Club introducing SEIA’s #DiversityChallenge. The challenge, issued in coordination with many of Washington’s energy trade associations, asks organizations to be active on social media by sharing their efforts to improve diversity and inclusion, sign on to the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge, attend SEIA’s #DiversityChallenge event today, and finally, mount a sustained effort to address diversity & inclusion at their company and in their industries.
