Heading to the WRISE Leadership Forum in D.C. this year? In this Green Light episode, Catherine spoke with Doseke Akporiaye, Executive Director of WRISE, about what will be new at the Forum, including their executive track, which will help empower senior women & non-binary leaders. Doseke & Catherine also discussed the impact that the WRISE Speakers Bureau & no manels pledge are having on women’s careers, including Anne Locke at E3 Consulting & Yejide Olutosin at the Business Climate Finance Initiative, whose career trajectories have been transformed after having been discovered through the Bureau. Doseke also shared about an initiative she is spearheading at WRISE to enable conferences like Solarplaza to publicly share data about representation on their panels. Shoutout to WRISE’s latest additions to its Board, including Constance Thompson at ACORE, Asha Gandhi at energyRe, & Lauren Haller at Pattern Energy Group.
