Local ‘Women in Power’ featured on national stage

A national panel of women leaders in the energy industry featured some of Minnesota’s best and brightest.

Sarah Peterson, vice president of engineering at Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative, and Margaret Schreiner, Great River Energy board vice chair and Dakota Electric Association board member, participated in a panel discussion hosted by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).

The panel discussion called “Women in Power — Finding Your Voice as a Leader” was featured at NRECA’s annual PowerXchange and TechAdvantage events earlier this month in San Antonio, Texas.

The events focused on best practices and sharing insights and ideas from thought leaders such as Peterson and Schreiner.
