The IPA announced an enhancement to the Energy Workforce Equity Portal that launched in January. Equity Eligible Persons registering on the Portal may now opt out of sharing their contact information with companies using the Portal. This feature, requested by stakeholders, means that companies and their staff can verify workers’/employees’ eligibility as Equity Eligible Persons without including their contact information in the list of EEPs visible to other employers.
The IPA is committed to making the Energy Workforce Equity Portal a valuable tool for participants in the clean energy economy and will continue to enhance and refine the Portal. Planned improvements include comprehensive listings of clean energy economy job trainings across Illinois, as well as other career development resources for job seekers.
