Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The team at SPI, ESI & Smart Energy Week strives to create an experience that embraces, recognizes, and celebrates the value of diversity and inclusion in all areas of the energy industry. Our programming showcases thought-leading content related to renewable energy, and we also strive to represent and highlight all parts of the industry in regards to race, ethnicity, gender, and age. Our goal is to ensure that, holistically, North America Smart Energy Week and all Solar Power Events are sustainable, diverse, and forward-looking events for the industry.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We have made a commitment to ensure that all educational programs provided by Solar Power Events must represent the diversity that the industry values and aspires to recognize. Industry panels, webinars, and education sessions that lack diversity do not meet the standards of our organizations and will not be confirmed until we have enough participants that rightfully represent the renewable energy industry.

Solar Energy Trade Shows, Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), and Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) are committed to ensuring that every person has a place in the future of the renewable energy industry. We believe that having a diverse workforce creates a more resilient organization - one that supports a strong, equitable solar industry.  We envision an industry that is committed to fostering a culture of inclusiveness at all levels.

Our partners and vendors are committed to the promotion of diversity & inclusion
