Kate Selden

Senior Policy Analyst

Kate is an equitable solar policy analyst for Solar One where she participates in clean energy coalitions, helps draft and communicate the organization’s positions, and develops relationships with environmental justice, clean energy, workforce, and affordable housing partners. Prior to working at Solar One, Kate worked in affordable housing development at Los Sures, a community-based organization in North Brooklyn where she was responsible for rehabilitation and new construction projects. She has also worked as an environmental educator, at a design/build garden company, and as an urban planning consultant for a variety of research and community engagement projects around New York City. Kate completed her MS in City and Regional Planning at Pratt Institute where she focused on sustainable and equitable environmental systems and integrating placed-based urban planning curriculum into public schools. She is passionate about popular education, advancing a just transition, and transforming the urban ecosystem to be more inclusive, equitable, and democratic. When not working, Kate tends to be outside as much as possible, running, hiking, gardening, learning about her community and celebrating the changing seasons.
