NEWIEE Energy/Environment Career Panel

NEWIEE is kicking off a series of on-campus chats - a chance for NEWIEE members to share their experience with young women and talk about careers in energy and the environment.  Getting exposed to the idea of a career in our field is the first step!  Getting encouraged by people like you is the second!  If you are in the area, or are a UMass alum, or just want to encourage young women, please join us.  Refreshments will be served.  No RSVP required.

Moderator:  Tamika Jacques, Director for Workforce Development, Massachusetts Clean Energy Center


Marie Abdou, Manager, Policy and Evaluation – MA Strategy, National Grid 

Kate McGinnes, Counsel, Energy and Utility Practice Group, Day Pitney 

Jessica Morrison, Compliance Specialist, Burns and McDonnell

Simi Hoque, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Dept. of Environmental Conservation,     University of Massachusetts-Amherst

We hope to see you there!  Thanks to our sponsors: Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and UMass Amherst Career Services

If you know of a school that would like NEWIEE members to come share their career stories, or if you are a young woman who would like to volunteer to talk to undergraduates about your career, please let us know!  Write to Carter Wall:
