MICROGRIDS AND THE FUTURE OF ENERGY
The Oakland East Bay IAS invites you to attend a Technical Seminar on October 25, 2018 titled, Microgrids Protection & Control Seminar.
These distributed microgrids will benefit islands and remote communities, as well the general population. Attentees will learn:
DIVERSITY IN THE WORKFORCE - LIVING STORIES
Each one of us looks at the same situation from a different perspective. A diverse workforce with an opportunity to voice their opinions and insights will allow for more opportunities to think outside the box to dream up new products, enhance a product's features, or identify a problem which is obvious to one person, but invisible to a homogeneous workforce. See this movie trailer which offers some highlights of contributions made by minorities, in addition to the Hidden Figures. See A Place at the Table
