The pace of change within the nation’s energy sector and demographic makeup demands that we better use our economic resources and human capital.
The Energy Workforce Division, in the Office of Minority Programs, supports entrepreneurship, innovation, and job creation for diverse communities in the high-growth energy sector and in DOE programs and research opportunities. These efforts directly support the Administration’s goals of job creation and increasing business opportunities for underrepresented communities.
Our programs and collaborations are designed to increase interest and access to energy sector opportunities. We do this through our established relationships with industry, trade associations, academia, and federal agencies.
We work with our partners to develop tools, resources, and technical assistance opportunities to increase participation in the energy economy.
