Join host Brandon Burke and guests Nse Esema (NYC EDC), Teaera Strum (Strum Contracting), and Damian Bednarz (EnBW North America) as they discuss the intersections between offshore wind and diversity, equity, inclusion, and environmental justice, through the lens of New York City’s South Brooklyn Marine Terminal and Sunset Park community. This episode also touches on what MWBEs and small businesses can do to position themselves as “opportunity ready” to participate in the supply chains of U.S. offshore wind projects. The Group also unpacks how the federal government places environmental justice at the core of climate policy decisions and what that means for offshore wind energy development.
