    Each year the U.S. Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) initiative recognizes outstanding female leaders by honoring them at its annual C3E Women in Clean Energy Symposium. This invitation-only event seeks to raise the visibility of women in this sector of the energy industry by honoring those in mid-career leadership and achievement.

    Nominations for 2019 are now open.  The categories are: Advocacy, Business, Education, Entrepreneurship, Government, International, Law & Finance, and Research.

    Anyone affiliated with the candidate through work, professional organizations, universities, community groups, etc. can make a nomination. However, the nominator should be very familiar with the accomplishments of their nominee.
