As it celebrates 40 years of inspiring transformative and lasting impact on Hispanic youth across various industries, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) hosted the CHCI Energy Summit: A World in Transition, on March 14, 2018, at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. The CHCI Energy Summit addressed various aspects of the energy sector, including the industry’s future from a national and international perspective, an appeal for Hispanic leadership roles, the impact of technology and innovation, as well as the role of energy in emergency preparedness. The energy sector workforce is facing a dramatic shift in demographics as thousands of seasoned employees retire annually. By 2025, one in two people entering the workforce will be Hispanic, yet less than 10 percent of the jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are currently held by Hispanics. There is no better moment than now to empower Hispanics to learn about careers within the energy sector and the possibility to make a difference in solving energy crises faced by so many of our communities in California, Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and beyond. The CHCI Energy Summit enabled Hispanic youth to network with policymakers and energy leaders to join the conversation about industry needs, solutions and opportunities that can ensure a brighter tomorrow.
