Today, newly sworn-in Secretary of Energy Dr. Ernest Moniz delivered welcoming remarks at the White House Leadership Summit on Women, Climate and Energy. The event gathered 100 of the nation's top women in climate and energy to discuss priorities and solutions to challenges in these fields. They spent the day talking about the crucial roles women play in science, energy and climate to improve communities, workplaces, and schools all over the world.
