A look at Women's Leadership from the Center for American Progress ThinkProgress
There is a silver lining to exclusion: Women, long outsiders, have had no choice but to think, act, and lead in out-of-the-box ways. That is why they are now poised to change our institutions for the better.

Introduction
WoWE's Mission: Women of Wind Energy (WoWE) promotes the education, professional development, and advancement of women to achieve a strong diversified workforce and support a robust renewable energy economy.

The rapid growth of the wind industry holds great promise for the world's energy futureand green careers of today and tomorrow. But historically, women have been under-represented in the wind industry.  This fact affects not only women in our field or contemplating it, but also the wind industry as a whole.  How will wind energy reap the full advantage of women's talents, energy, and ideas?  

Women of Wind Energy, or WoWE (pronounced WOW-ee) was founded in 2005 to ensure that women can play a full, productive role in the development of wind power.

Building women’s place in wind energy is not only the right and fair thing to do; it’s a solid strategy for success. The equal engagement of women in the work force and in senior management have been linked to greater organizational communication and efficiency, broader consumer awareness, and increased profitability.
