Women in Cleantech

Providing thought leadership to inspire and support more women in the cleantech sector

Creating an inclusive green economy means ensuring that everyone can benefit from the green economy, either from green jobs, clean air, or accessing new zero emissions mobility or energy solutions. As part of our work in Enhancing Communities, LACI created our Women in Cleantech (“WICT”) program to intentionally recruit and support more women  in accelerating their cleantech solutions, sector expertise, and career growth.

FOUND/LA + LACI: Coffee Talks Series

Women in Cleantech’s six-part FOUND/LA + LACI: Coffee Talks Event Series ran from May – September 2022. This thought leadership series provided women founders with actionable resources and a supportive community to help their businesses thrive. Each session took place in local women-owned coffee shops, covered critical topics facing women entrepreneurs, and engaged both the FOUND/LA and LACI communities.
