Join us on March 2nd at 4:30pm CT/5:30pm ET to find out how electricity gets from where it is generated to where it is needed to run your phone charger, your refrigerator, your Electric Vehicle, your school, etc.

Electricity travels on the Grid and that system needs to be durable, reliable, flexible and increasingly innovative. Come meet four women who make sure the Grid is all those things; they’ll describe their jobs, how they got them and how you can get into this type of interesting work. Our speakers are:

  • Avarie Hansen, Senior Distribution Systems Operator at ComEd
  • Mahavish Mahmood, General Engineer in Capacity Planning at ComEd
  • Nikol Reed, Senior Engineer in Strategic Planning at ComEd
  • Gisela Sosa, Senior Engineer in Renewable Energy at ComEd
