In 2019 we took AOWomen to the main stage!

As one of the least gender diverse industries in the world, closing the diversity gap has never been more important in oil & gas. A more diverse workforce promotes an inclusive environment, brings better decision-making processes and can lead to increased economic performance. At AOW 2019, AOWomen included a panel discussion on the main stage and networking and discussion of key issues at breakfast roundtables

Discussions focused on:

  • Inclusive growth across the industry: from Operators to SMEs, how can women position themselves at the decision-making table of every major project and policy reform decision for the continent?

  • Future leaders & parity pledges: encouraging commitment to a greater recruitment drive for women across the industry

  • Sponsorship and mentorship: career progression and opportunities for women
