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 underserved.
Our WET Center companies strive to create diverse teams and are proud to have 20% of their c-suite filled by women and 47% filled by minority groups.
Their employee teams are also quite impressive, made up of 13% women and 21% minority groups.
