Promoting Gender Diversity in World Oil & Gas

This event will provide a platform for a conversation on why the industry lags behind many comparative industries when it comes to gender diversity and the growing importance of women in this sector.

This event is hosted and organised by the Global Women Petroleum & Energy Club and being held at The Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London on Tuesday 20 February.

A hot topic within the industry at the moment and this event will provide a platform for a conversation on why the industry lags behind many comparative industries when it comes to gender diversity and the growing importance of women in this sector.

In this new era, oil and gas companies are woefully underrepresented in gender diversity and senior management must consciously make moves to address the imbalance.

This event will bring together industry leaders and independent experts, to discuss the big topics around gender diversity.

You will hear some Personal Journeys from women at various points in their careers from around the world and how they have overcome adversity to enjoy vibrant careers. How can oil companies successfully tackle the challenges and attract new female talent?

The event features a formal two-course Luncheon with Keynote Speaker.

The Global Women Petroleum & Energy Club will then conduct a Working Session with the World Petroleum Council/Boston Consulting Group who will present their recent Report ‘Untapped Reserves: Promoting Gender Balance in Oil and Gas' and gather your thoughts on how we can tap into female talent as an industry.

C-Level strategists, head hunters and board members would benefit from being part of the debate.
