Solar Diversity

2023 Solar Diversity Champion Award Finalist

SolarEdge was the winner of the bronze award for the 2023 Solar Diversity Champion Award from SolarPower Europe. SolarEdge was recognized as a leader in diversity after creating a training program specifically designed for Bedouin women from Zarzir, a Bedouin community in northern Israel. This program aims to tackle an Israeli case of intersectionality, by encouraging quality employment in technological fields among women who are also part of an underemployed minority group. Through the program, 14 Bedouin women were trained in ERP and CRM system automation by SolarEdge professionals, and now work for SolarEdge as external QA testers, with the aim of future hiring as full-time employees. The program also aims for the participating women to become role models in their communities and inspire others to seek meaningful careers and challenge traditional norms.

*This multi-dimensional way of measuring ESG risk combines the concepts of management and exposure to arrive at an assessment of ESG risk, i.e. a total unmanaged ESG risk score or the ESG Risk Rating, that is comparable across all industries. Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings provide a quantitative measure of unmanaged ESG risk and distinguish between five levels of risk: negligible, low, medium, high and severe.
