Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Executive Summit

CvilleREA is committed to bringing more diversity, equity, and inclusion to the renewable energy industry in Charlottesville. Because we believe that change starts at the top, we are hosting an executive summit focused on addressing these challenges. 

This initial training (Phase One) will occur in two sessions and is available exclusively to c-suite representatives from all of our member companies.  A follow up training (Phase Two) will be scheduled for later this year to include all member company employees. 

Each member organization is invited to bring three representatives: 

  • Two C-Suite

  • One diversity and inclusion representative (i.e. Director of HR, Equity Team Lead, etc.)

October 14, 2020 — 8:00am - 9:00am
October 28, 2020 — 8:00am - 9:00am
