One of the goals of the Energy Trans Lab is to integrate research and teaching in a undergraduate and graduate education for the purpose of promoting student success. A key interest is in the value of mentoring networks to inspire gender equality in Energy Studies. Toward this end, we are investigating the impact of a mentoring network between WWU women in Energy Studies and local professional women in energy professions. The first meeting of the Network was a strong success and followups are being scheduled for the rest of this academic year. The project is led by Lindsay Parapet, a senior who has completed the minor in Energy Policy. A Facebook page is the space where coordination is happening.
