CWEEL Event – 4th Energy Extravaganza with AEE Chapters
On February 23rd, the Council of Women in Energy and Environmental Leadership (CWEEL) had another great event at the University of Maryland, College Park as part of the 4th Energy Extravaganza which AEE-Baltimore, AEE-National Capital Chapter and Leaders In Energy had co-organized.
The following were our panelists:
Rosa Cassidy – Deputy Director, Lockheed Martin
Kathy MaGruder – Executive Director, Maryland Clean Energy Center
Laurie Vodreuil – CEO, Mosaic Power
Janine Finnell did the opening remarks for CWEEL and Nandini Mouli moderated the panel. The three panelists responded to 6 questions related to career, women in energy working together to advance “common good” in the industry and how to be of support to each other. We selected the panelists because they are not only trailblazers in the cleantech world but also very creative individuals and public in their causes for women’s progress. For showing their personal side, Rosa Cassidy was asked to read out-loud a poem from her book, “Mi vid en poemas y cuentos” and Kathy and Laurie shared their experiences with painting landscapes and rocks. Their life and career stories touched many people in the audience and stuck a nice chord. Many mentioned that they were (are) motivated about their job, career and future in general in the clean energy world.
