As AAPI Heritage Month draws to a close, we want to thank the AAPI staff at GRID Alternatives who have shared some of their stories with us this past month. We would also like to thank the Asian Pacific Environmental Network for joining us in a conversation on fighting for an environmentally just future, which you can watch here. We recognize that AAPI communities continue to face violent attacks and micro-aggressions in places of work, and want to uplift these resources: Stop AAPI Hate, Conflict De-Escalation training, Bystander Intervention training, and Responding to and Preventing Harassment training.
In case you missed our staffs’ posts on GRID’s Instagram, we are sharing them here.
As the clean energy industry grows, it’s critical that environmental and social justice remains at the forefront of our efforts, including continued action to integrate diversity, equity and inclusion into hiring practices and organizational culture, at all levels.
GRID's Multifamily & Commercial team returned to California's largest affordable housing conference, Housing CA. GRID was a Sustainer level sponsor of the conference, which allowed us to connect both virtually and in-person with affordable housing stakeholders.
We need accountability for diversity and inclusion in the clean energy industry. The clean energy industry has an accountability problem when it comes to inclusion. Despite a growing number of programs and commitments to diversify the renewable energy workforce, the culture of the industry remains hostile to women and people of color.
