Join Out in Energy on July 14 at 6 PM EDT for a hybrid event at the Georgetown Club in Washington, DC featuring Out energy leader, Mr. Tarak Shah, Chief of Staff at the Department of Energy.

This in-person event will include a happy hour, moderated discussion, and dinner (expenses paid); those unable to attend in-person will have the opportunity to join remotely via Zoom for the discussion with Mr. Shah and virtual networking sessions. Please note in-person availability is limited and we will notify you if/when in-person capacity has been reached.

This event is part of a series of Out in Energy engagements designed to educate network members on key energy trends and policies, connect people across the LGBTQI+ community working in energy and climate, and raise overall visibility for LGBTQI+ people working in these fields.

Please email network lead Zack Strauss at in order to RSVP to attend in-person. Should you register through the below online portal alone, we will assume you will be engaging remotely via Zoom. Business casual attire suggested.
