Going Green

This morning, I attended a breakfast briefing at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ, on the subject of Green Jobs in New Jersey. Fascinating!

Moderated by Jeana Wirtenberg of ISE, there were three panelists:

1. Michael Winka of the NJ Board of Public Utilities who focused on the Energy sector of the economy in the state of New Jersey.

2. Jennifer Cleary of the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University, who focused directly on the "green jobs" and how we need to further define them, as well as the skills and career pathways that must be developed.

3. Elizabeth Reynoso of the NJ Social Justice Institute, who spoke about the gains being made in inner city programs to train the disadvantaged for the green economy.

Three words bubbled up during the panel presentation: Exciting, Emerging, and Evolving.
