Expanding Clean Energy Under The Biden-Harris Administration

Past Event

March 4, 2021

5:45 pm - 7:15 pm

The Biden-Harris Administration has named climate change and clean energy innovation as signature priorities and promised to build the most diverse Cabinet in American history. Beyond Vice President Kamala Harris’ historic election, President Biden has exceeded records set by Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush in the number of women he has nominated to his Cabinet. Even without gender parity, Biden’s Cabinet picks set records in diversity, including the first woman to serve as Treasury Secretary and, if confirmed, the first Native American Cabinet member. Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy’s Women in Energy (WIE) program as we host a panel of experts to discuss the policies, finance, and leadership skills that will be needed to drive the energy transition in the United States, and how the leadership of women will shape the transition. With this event, we’re honored to welcome Tufts University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to the WIE network. By joining the WIE network, the Climate Policy Lab, an initiative at Tufts University’s Fletcher School, and the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) will bring WIE programming such as roundtables, site visits, and professional development workshops, to their students, alumni, and the broader Boston area, and support WIE’s mission to bring more opportunities to women who want to work in the energy sector. They join our University partners – NYU, The New School, and Rutgers University – in striving to make the energy sector more inclusive for women and all underrepresented groups. Please join us on March 4 for our first joint Tufts University, MITEI, and Columbia University Women in Energy event. Moderator:

  • Amy Myers Jaffe, Managing Director of the Climate Policy Lab & Research Professor at The Fletcher School, Tufts University and Co-Chair, Women in Energy Steering Committee


  • Dr. Barbara Kates-Garnick, Professor of Practice & Senior Research Fellow at The Fletcher School, Tufts University and former Undersecretary of Energy for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Speaker with public office policy experience.
