“Women often have far more skills than their resumes translate into. And actually we're going into a good period now where I think employers and organizations are looking for the skillset that you have more than the job titles that you have. And that's good for women because we have a lot of skills that we will have acquired in different arenas. Bring in your all… It's tough out there. It requires resilience, but just remember that you have a tremendous amount to offer and, um, you know it, and sooner or later somebody's going to figure that out too.”  on Electric Ladies podcast...

“Women are very worried about these (extreme weather) events, and they're the ones that really worry about the impact on communities.…They want to leave a better country for their children...They will say that climate change is something that really is on my agenda more because my children talk to me about it and they listen to their children and grandchildren.

Congress is back in session and about to negotiate the draconian cuts to environmental, clean energy and climate change-related government funding -- and having to do so on the heels of the direct experience of the impact of climate change through the ferocity of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The very programs they are looking to cut are those that are helping us manage these storms with the fewest deaths and injuries and least loss of property. These storms should demonstrate in stark terms the need to maintain these programs and even increase funding.

In light of these threatened cuts, the business community is stepping up its game, and one of the important organizations leading and supporting the business community in doing so is the Clean Energy Business Network, which monitors, advocates for and connects small and medium-sized businesses to policy decisions related to clean energy.

So, please meet its Executive Director, Lynn Abramson and listen to Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson's engaging and informative interview with her.
