Members of the Solar Energy Industries Association can now point to specific steps they’ve taken to advance diversity, equity and inclusion within their companies. And they’ll get a certificate to show for it. As they advance through a new online program, businesses can obtain certification at the bronze, silver, gold and platinum levels.

“This is an area where I think associations should show our members the path and not wait for our members to ask for it,” SEIA CEO Abigail Ross Hopper told CEO Update. “I think it will provide a competitive advantage to businesses, to companies, to members when they choose to invest in this work.”
