C3E Women in Clean Energy winner uses prize money to create a grassroots Colorado initiative

When Judy Dorsey, president of sustainable engineering and planning firm Brendle Group, won the U.S. Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) program’s Women in Clean Energy award at the inaugural symposium in September 2012, she knew she needed to do something with the $10,000 cash prize that would help spread the mission of C3E. She’s In Power (formerly Colorado C3E) has been going strong ever since, thanks to Judy’s gift and drive to empower women in clean energy.

Thanks to our sponsors for making She’s in Power possible


Evidence from many sectors suggests that integrating women into all levels of the energy value chain will lead to more effective clean energy initiatives.
