Women’s Network for Energy, Environment & Transportation (WNEET) is proud to be another founding association of the WISE (Women Investing in Self and Energy) Program powered by @PinkPetro. The PinkPetro WISE Program will bring together associations, organizations, women’s networks, and gender initiative leaders to harness the power of human capital – specifically, women in the energy industry, relevant content, and tremendous technology.


WNEET has a membership base of more than 300 women and men in energy in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.  The Network will be the lead association hosting HERWorld 2017 in New York City on March 8, 2017, which will bring women and men together worldwide to tackle current energy topics and issues.    


WNEET Members will have access to the PinkPetro platform of services at a discounted rate, and gain the opportunity to engage with this outstanding network. PinkPetro was born out of becoming the most influential global community of women and men in energy, looking to do something serious about the gender gap, and attracting new talent into an unsung industry.


“I’m thrilled to see the industry come together through the WISE Program at a time when we need to do something different to attract, retain and develop the next generation of talent in the industry.  We’re excited to have WNEET take the lead in hosting 2017 HERWorld NYC on international women’s day, March 8, 2017,” said Katie Mehnert, CEO and Founder of PinkPetro.
