About The Event

The Council on Women in Energy & Environmental Leadership (CWEEL) provides a network for women in the energy and environmental industries that can assist in supporting career development for professional women, mentor young and aspiring women to pursue technical education and careers in the energy and environmental fields, and establish CWEEL as a forum for women to promote policy in the energy industry. CWEEL is a division of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE).

The newly-established CWEEL NYC Chapter invites you to join our 1st virtual gathering to celebrate the New Year and help plan events for 2021.
