The U.S. Labor Department released an online guide aimed toward women looking to get into the “green jobs” market.
The guide, Why Green is Your Color: A Woman´s Guide to a Sustainable Career, is available on the agency´s website.
The guide focuses on helping workers learn about a range of in-demand and emerging jobs as well as job training opportunities and career development tools, the agency said.
Sara Manzano-Diaz, director for the Women’s Bureau at the Labor Department, said many occupations in the clean energy economy remain virtually untapped by women.
“This guide is an invaluable resource that workforce professionals can use to help women transition into higher-paying jobs that serve as a pathway into the middle class,” she said in a written statement. “It is also a tool to help fight job segregation.”
