About FAE

About Us


There has never been a more exciting time to be in the energy industry.  To meet the challenges ahead for our industry, we need to make sure that we have all hands on deck – that we are recruiting from the COMPLETE pool of talent.  

What we do:  FAE actively recruits young women and people of color and encourages them to explore rewarding careers in the energy field by applying for summer internships with participating employers.    Most of our internships are supported directly by companies who are making an investment in the workforce of the future.  We also actively solicit funding from donors to support internships at non-profits and government agencies. 

Energy is currently the least diverse sector after mining, both by gender and by ethnic background.  One concrete way to encourage greater participation in the field is to reach out to students at a time when they are exploring their career options.   FAE works with employers to help them build their workforce pipeline from a new demographic.
