This role demonstrates that when provided with access and support, small BIPOC organizations can not only participate in the clean energy economy, but also innovate and lead.
The Trade Ally Navigator reports directly to the Program Manager, Contractor Development and is part of the Workforce and Small Business Development Team. This position is located in the state of Oregon and is currently remote.
