Women in Climate Investing – Event in NYC

Women in Climate Investing – Event in NYC

There are a number of climate-related conferences underway this week. We have Climate Week in New York City and Re+ in Anaheim. Next week there is also an event in Pittsburgh.

The Energize team is beginning to attend and host events at these conferences. This morning two Energize investors, Eileen Waris and Honour Masters, held a “Women in Climate” gathering in New York City. As a firm that looks to foster diversity and inclusion we have been deliberate in supporting organizations that deliver this talent. We are also looking to be a convener as our own team believes that we can use our profile to elevate awareness for high promise individuals and attract new talent.

Honour and Eileen proactively created this event and we worked with our co-investor (and Honour’s former firm) Union Square Ventures to put this gathering together. We co-held the event at USV’s beautiful new offices in Brooklyn and over 40 women investors focused on the climate & sustainability themes showed up. Photos from the event are below. I’m pleased that Honour and Eileen took the initiative to put this all together, and that Energize’s team ethos wants to support these events.

If you would like to be included in other events we are hosting, please reach out. We will be hosting another Women in Climate event here in Chicago later this year.
