The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Engineering for Change, climate consultancy OnePointFive and climate tech coalition Climate Draft have joined forces for a stimulating evening of cocktails and conversation about the future of energy and the global workforce necessary to make that vision a reality.

Powering the Future seeks to gather professionals from across the spectrum of industry, finance, academia, and policy in an effort to exchange ideas and spur collaboration. Join us to learn more about advancements in renewable, clean, and sustainable energy technologies and the human capital necessary to meet our current and future energy needs.

The centerpiece of the evening is a panel featuring a diversity of perspectives from across the public and private sectors. The moderated discussion will address pressing issues including the identification of current and anticipated future energy talent gaps, the roles of challenging technologies like nuclear and hydrogen, worthwhile upskilling programs to invest in, and potential opportunities for young or transitioning professionals.
