Investing in Tomorrow's Leaders

OUR MISSION

To support water, energy and ag-tech innovators and entrepreneurs on their path to commercialization through training, coaching and networking. 

Our Impact at a Glance Graphic.Updated2.17.2022.png

The Water, Energy, and Technology (WET) Center is committed to fostering an inclusive environment that is respectful and affirming to the needs and identities of all entrepreneurs, staff, students, and community members. We recognize that people of color and women are disproportionately impacted by adverse environmental conditions (https://diversegreen.org/research/the-challenge/). Despite the unequal environmental challenges minoritized populations face, they are underrepresented in the industries of water, energy, and agricultural technology. Diversity statements without action plans and data collection are just words on paper. The WET Center pledges to consistently assess the demographics of our participants so that we can equitably connect to populations who are being underserved.

 

  • Our WET Center companies strive to create diverse teams and are proud to have 20% of their c-suite filled by women and 49% filled by minority groups.

  • Their employee teams are also quite impressive, made up of 12% women and 19% minority groups.

The WET Center opened the door for us to the Central Valley farming community, and being a part of Valley Ventures was a great experience.  A wonderful network of experts that helped ECO2MIX in landing here in California.
