Pittsfield, Maine – June 2, 2022 – Kleinschmidt Associates is excited to announce the newly established sponsorship initiative supporting Women in Renewable Energy (WiRE). WiRE’s mission is to advance the role and recognition of women and other under-represented groups working in the energy sector.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to align Kleinschmidt’s corporate goals with a great organization,” said Jon Christensen, CEO of Kleinschmidt Associates. “We look forward to working together on initiatives that will develop skilled talent and future leaders in the industry.”
Launched in 2013, WiRE forges partnerships with government agencies and a spectrum of energy industry associations, other related networking groups for professionals, and academic providers. Kleinschmidt committing to this sponsorship adds to the growing number of industry supporters and sponsors, which helps to provide WiRE programming at low or no cost.
“At WiRE, we believe sponsorship is much more than just a logo on a website or a sign on a wall,” said Joanna Osawe, CEO of WiRE. “When done right, sponsorship carries a synergy between organization and sponsor, which can provide connections and opportunities that empower those who are underrepresented.”
Kleinschmidt Associates performs engineering, regulatory and environmental consulting for North American energy companies and government agencies who strive to protect and enhance the natural environment without compromising performance. We work at the intersection of regulatory requirements, environmental science, and engineering solutions to achieve our client’s objectives.
