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.

We launched the Women in Cleantech Program to foster gender equity through distinctive support and resources for women and historically underrepresented individuals, including thought leadership, network access, and community-building.
LACI’s Women in Cleantech events are open to all genders.
FOUND/LA + LACI: Coffee Talks Series
Women in Cleantech’s six-part FOUND/LA + LACI: Coffee Talks Event Series will run from May – September 2022. This thought leadership series provides women founders with actionable resources and a supportive community to help their businesses thrive. Each session takes place in local women-owned coffee shops (Covid restrictions permitting), covers critical topics facing women entrepreneurs, and engages both the FOUND/LA and LACI communities.

Accelerating Careers in the Green Economy
The WICT Program provides LACI with an added opportunity to prioritize female founders and workforce leaders for speaking engagements, funding opportunities, partner collaborations and introductions, as well as engage with the next generation of female entrepreneurs through the Middle School Girls in STEM Program. Since 2016, LACI has increased its overall startup diversity with 26% growth in its women founders and 45% growth in its BIPOC founders. Collectively, WICT has helped to support 120 women founders and leaders in growing their businesses and 65 women workforce participants accelerating their careers in the green economy.
