In a world dominated by males, it is important to give women credit for the great strides they have taken in the business industry and beyond. Founded in 2010, the Women of Power group was co-founded by Renée Hornbaker, Chief Financial Officer of Stream Energy in an effort to empower women both in their company and beyond. There is an annual retreat where ladies join together to learn from keynote speakers, create important business connections, build confidence, plus so much more. The fourth annual retreat took place in November 2017 in Dallas, Texas. Each year has an exciting theme, this year it was “Shine”. The retreat participants enjoyed a weekend of inclusion, learning, and good-natured fun.
Stream Energy, or Stream, was founded in 2005 in Dallas, Texas. The company offers electric energy, natural gas, home security, and wireless services to their customers. They have recently expanded their business to include Delaware and Illinois with more expansion planned in the coming years. The company’s goal is to be able to provide alternative choices of energy to their consumers along with other services that are most needed and used by American individuals and families.
Global warming is quickly becoming an indisputable fact. Better use of natural resources may lessen the human impact on the natural impact. That is why Stream Energy has made it a priority to use clean energy sources and to pass along more options in fuel sourcing to consumers. In 2016 they announced an initiative called the Smart30 WaterSaver Green & Clean Plan. The plan allowed customers to choose clean energy sources over fossil fuels that are not renewable and deplete the planet’s natural resources. They also encourage responsible water usage especially in regard to sprinkler systems (http://www.gcreport.com/global-warming-dallas-texas-stream-energy/).
While the company may be newer to the energy scene, Stream Energy has worked to leave a positive impact on their community and planet Earth. Stream assisted in storm cleanup from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma (LinkedIn). They also waived fees to affected customers to further give back. Stream has made clean energy a priority and has been winning new customers to their cause.
