It's almost here - the 2014 C3E Symposium!

The U.S. Department of Energy and the MIT Energy Initiative are excited to host the third annual C3E Women in Clean Energy Symposium as part of their shared commitment to C3E as a Clean Energy Ministerial initiative. At each symposium C3E Ambassadors and award winners come together with women working in the sector, students, and representatives from partner governments for a professional conference intended to build a strong and interconnected network of women in clean energy. In addition to an awards ceremony with high-level keynote speakers, substantive sessions track the award categories. The event also includes small group discussions anchored by Ambassadors, student research presentations, and networking opportunities.

As a C3E Ambassador, I’ve been asked to reflect on my career (now spanning over three decades) and discuss insights on leadership.  Let me start by saying that every person has her (or his) own career path and the most important advice I can give is to stay true to the approach that fits you the best.  However, don’t ever short-change yourself on how much you can accomplish or how far you can go.

I am right where I should be at this stage of my career. But I believe my journey may have been smoother if someone sat me down and gave me a few bits of advice. Here… Continue
