The city of Atlanta is undergoing a renewable energy transformation, and every person must be able to see themselves as part of climate change solutions. As the President and CEO of Power Solutions and the founder of Women Do Everything, Tonya is changing the face of the workforce in Atlanta by helping women of color receive the support they need to generate wealth and increase diversity in industries that are powering the renewable energy transformation. Tonya is an electrician, an entrepreneur, and a Black woman and single mother; she understands what it is like to be underestimated and overlooked in trade and technical careers. These life experiences have helped form her determination to pursue her dreams and do it anyway. Her mission is to encourage women to join jobs in male-dominated industries such as construction, renewable energy, and other STEM-related careers (science, technology, engineering, and math).
