Green Is Good for Women
February 9, 2012
Career opportunities are growing in the emerging “green economy,” and women need to take notice, according to Sara Manzano-Díaz, director of the Women’s Bureau at the U.S. Department of Labor.
“Many occupations in the clean energy economy remain virtually untapped by women,” Manzano-Díaz says.
To help women find these well-paying “green” jobs, the U.S. Department of Labor has released a guide entitled “Why Green is Your Color: A Woman’s Guide to a Sustainable Career.” This online resource is designed to help women learn about a range of in-demand and emerging jobs and the training opportunities and career development tools needed to get them.
