This presentation will focus on how Denver’s Climate Action, Sustainability & Resiliency Office (CASR) implements its Green Workforce Strategy to expand job opportunities for under-resourced individuals through paid training programs and partnerships with employers, trade organizations, training providers, and community organizations in renewable energy and natural resource pathways. Shannon will also share more about CASR’s inception and how equity is centered around everything they do.
