WRISE Virtual Luncheon Event

to
Due to COVID-19, we won’t be hosting our 2020 Luncheon in person at AWEA’s CLEANPOWER Conference and Exhibition.

After exploring different virtual event options, we’ve selected a platform to host this year’s event virtually. We’re excited to have the ability to still connect and provide our community with a unique opportunity to network virtually while supporting WRISE’s mission to promote the education, professional development, and advancement of women in renewable energy.
