The Office of Economic Impact and Diversity’s Minority Business and Workforce Division works to advance the principles of recognition, procedural, distributive, and reparative justice by:

  • Assessing disparities within clean energy funding and workforce opportunities for disadvantaged communities, small and minority-owned businesses, and minority-serving institutions.
  • Centering disadvantaged communities, small and minority-owned businesses, and minority-serving institutions in the creation of policy frameworks, funding opportunities, and partnerships to democratize our energy systems and processes.
  • Remediating energy injustices and disparities through equitable policy implementation, funding opportunities, and workforce initiatives that support disadvantaged communities, small and minority-owned businesses, and minority-serving institutions.
