Our Director Nicole Lautze was featured in the Women in Geothermal campaign by the Geo Energy Marketing Services:
We continue our celebration of Women in Geothermal with a spotlight on Dr. Nicole Lautze, Director and Faculty Researcher / Hawaii Groundwater and Geothermal Resources Center, Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Dr. Lautze’s full quote is both inspiring and frustrating to know gender inequality is still so prevalent. We applaud and support Dr. Lautze in all that she’s doing for geothermal and women in geothermal / STEM.
“My passion for geothermal is derived from my fundamental concern for the planet. It has been an honor to lead the 5-yr-long Hawaii Play Fairway project, a statewide geothermal resource assessment, which includes a team of 5 male co-investigators and a number of both male and female students and employees. I enjoy working amongst bright and excited colleagues at all levels. Without intentionally setting out to be a champion of gender equality in geothermal and/or STEM, the gender-oriented roadblocks I have (and continue to) face(d) in my academic career are substantial. I am pulling for a sustainable planet and significant progress on gender equity into the future…”
Thank you for participating in our Women in Geothermal campaign Dr. Lautze. Your work is very important for our industry.
