Out in Energy is a national umbrella network for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI) professionals working across the US energy and climate sectors, and across all energy sources and technologies. The Out in Energy network serves as a community development and visibility incubator for LGBTQI+ people working in energy and climate, with the goals of elevating the voices of Out energy and climate leaders, supporting the career development of younger Out professionals, connecting LGBTQI+ jobseekers with companies and government agencies, and creating a space for LGBTQI+ energy and climate professionals to connect and form a cohesive community across the country.
