C3E Ambassadors are distinguished senior leaders who serve as role models and advocates for women in clean energy. They represent the C3E program at public forums and work to strengthen the recruitment, retention, and advancement of highly qualified women in the energy field. U.S. C3E Ambassadors select the annual U.S. C3E Award winners and provide strategic input on the U.S. C3E program.
