Four employees of Encore Renewable Energy in Burlington, VT — Chad Farrell, Blake Sturcke, Phillip Foy, and Ginie Olson — signed the GA Pledge declaring their intent to say “no thank you” if asked to serve as a panelist on an all-male panel at a public conference. Encore’s General Counsel Phillip Foy said he signed because “representation is vital if we intend to tackle climate change.” Thank you to all four of our newest GA Pledge signers.

High fives to the 4 employees of @EncoreRenewable who signed the #GAPledge and took a stand against one-sided conversations about climate change. #GenderAvenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/avengers-of-the-week-encore-renewable-energy
