By signing SB 350 into law in 2015, Governor Brown committed California to doubling energy efficiency savings by 2030. The State Building & Construction Trades Council of California called SB 350 “one of the largest job-creating bills in many years.” But has California delivered on these promises? And do these new jobs pay well enough to support California’s families?
Please join AWWEE’s SF Bay Area Leadership Team for an interactive discussion of this topic with Betony Jones, Associate Director of the Green Economy Program at UC Berkeley’s Center for Labor Research and Education, and Jodi Pincus, President and Executive Director of the Rising Sun Energy Center. Betony will share her recent research into how policy drivers have affected green job creation in California, and Jodi will share her experiences leading green workforce development training programs in the Bay Area—including a construction pre-apprenticeship program targeted toward women! Learn more about the quantity and quality of green jobs created by recent policy in California and learn more about how these jobs have the power to transform lives.
Refreshments for this event will be provided courtesy of the AWWEE Bay Area Regional Leadership Team.
