Events at PVSC

Women in PV


The WiPV program provides educational and networking opportunities to support women working in the field of photovoltaics. The program holds an annual luncheon at the conference that has highlighted women who work in the field of PV and brought in experts to share information about improving diversity in STEM. This year, in addition to our large luncheon event, we are working to improve access to resources for women and families juggling the "child care conundrum", including a parent/child room, private space for lactation, and coordinating networking for personally organized childcare.

For more information about onsite resources, please see the Attendee Resource page.
