C3E Ambassadors

The U.S. C3E Ambassadors are distinguished senior leaders who serve as role models and advocates for women in clean energy. They represent the U.S. C3E program at public forums and work to strengthen the recruitment, retention, and advancement of highly qualified women in the energy field. Ambassadors select the annual U.S. C3E Award winners and provide strategic input on the U.S. C3E program. Along with their counterparts named by partner governments within the Clean Energy Ministerial, they are part of the International C3E Ambassador Corps.
