Women Making an Impact
Profiles of women in Maine’s wind industry. Nationwide, women hold only 12% of jobs in the field, although the industry, being so new, has fewer traditional barriers for women. Katherine Joyce is an attorney at Bernstein Shur who specializes in the permitting process. She discusses how everyone – women and men – are learning together. Hallie Gilman is associate general counsel at First Wind. She feels the industry rewards creativity, rather than seniority. They and other women agree, however, that the larger energy and utility industry still has a way to go before it lets go of the status quo. Article includes a very brief overview of the state of wind energy in Maine at present.
