Why Green is Your Color: A Woman’s Guide to a Sustainable Career by U.S. DOL

U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s   Bureau releases   guide to help women prepare for, find and succeed in ‘green’ jobs

  Clean energy economy offers women untapped employment opportunities

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced the   availability of “Why Green is   Your Color: A Woman’s Guide to a Sustainable Career,” which is designed to   help women find and keep higher paying jobs in the clean energy economy.

The online publication, available at http://www.dol.gov/wb/Green_Jobs_Guide/GreenJobs%20Final_11.2011.pdf   will help workers learn about a range of in-demand and emerging jobs, as well   as job training opportunities and career development tools, in the clean   energy economy. The guide also serves as a resource for workforce development   professionals, training providers, educators, career counselors and women’s   advocacy organizations.

“Many occupations in the clean energy economy remain virtually untapped   by women,” said Sara Manzano-Díaz, director of the Women’s Bureau. “This   guide is an invaluable resource that workforce professionals can use to help   women transition into higher paying jobs that serve as a pathway into the   middle class. It is also a tool to help fight job segregation.”

The guide is an outcome of nationwide roundtables at which leaders from   the public and private sectors discussed opportunities for women in the clean   energy economy. These conversations revealed that an overall lack of   awareness and information about nontraditional jobs was a significant   challenge to women hoping to succeed in this marketplace. Information about   the roundtables is available at http://www.dol.gov/wb/media/green.htm.

Additional resources to help women succeed in nontraditional and   emerging job sectors are available by contacting the Women’s Bureau at   202-693-6710 or visiting its Web pages at http://www.dol.gov/wb.

The Women’s Bureau, established by Congress in 1920, is the only federal   agency designated to represent the needs of working women. Today, the   bureau’s goal is to empower all working women to achieve economic security by   preparing them for higher paying jobs, ensuring fair compensation, promoting   workplace flexibility and helping homeless women veterans reintegrate into   the workforce.

FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT:     U.S. Department of Labor – Women’s Bureau – 200 Constitution Ave., NW –   Washington, DC 20210   202.693.6710 (telephone) – 202.693.6725 (fax) – website: www.dol.gov/wb
