WBENC Certified Women-Owned Business
Gotham 360 takes stewardship of the environment very seriously. Likewise, we have built our business model around creating a lasting, positive impact on the lives of women – both in and out of the energy industry. Through strategic partnerships, mentoring programs and ongoing community involvement, Gotham 360 is empowering young women to change the world.
As a proud WBENC Certified Women Owned Business, Gotham 360 embraces the organization's credo that "Diversity promotes innovation, opens doors, and creates partnerships that fuel the economy."
“To be recognized as an enterprising woman is both a great honor and extremely humbling. Like many women who try to do too much, I can often feel like nothing is being done as well as it could be and that goals are not being attained. Taking the time to step back and truly review the achievements made has been very satisfying.”
Mentoring Tomorrow's Leaders
In the male-dominated field of energy, Gotham 360 has made it a priority to collaborate with young, ambitious women looking to break into the business. We are proud to support and actively participate in a number of mentorship programs, geared towards women:
iMentor – Gotham 360 employees partner with high school students, assisting them through college application process and providing additional support during the first year of college.
The Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) and The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program Entry Program (CSTEP), Sister to Sister Program at Barnard College – Each year, Gotham 360 collaborates with Barnard College students, offering interested students a chance to seek career advice and internship opportunities in their relevant fields of study, including the energy sector.
QuestBridge Quest for Excellence NYC Award – The Excellence NYC Award is a local initiative of the national QuestBridge Quest organization. Gotham 360 works with QuestBridge Quest, to create opportunities for talented, high-achieving, low-income high school students – helping them navigate through academic and life choices.
Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) – Jennifer Kearney was selected as a keynote speaker, to share her knowledge in career planning, time management and other life skills to college students.
“Women are starting 1,200 new businesses per day – they are inventing products, solving problems, creating jobs and supporting their communities. The impact is undeniable and the growth is unprecedented, but we have a long way to go before reaching parity.”
