Here at Pink Petro, we work hard to develop resources and build a community around empowering women and closing the gender gap. And, while we don’t do it ever expecting an ounce of recognition, we’ll be the first to admit that it’s always nice to be applauded every now and then.


That’s why we’re thrilled to share that Pink Petro has been included on Ellevate Network’s list of Top Resources for Professional Women under the category of “Disruptor”. As Ellevate Network explains, “Disruptors are innovators in the world who turn business on its head to create something truly unique.”


It’s so exciting to be recognized on this list that features so many other companies, enterprises, and initiatives that are kicking major tail when it comes to closing the gender gap. And, it’s even more exciting that many of these companies are our partners. Our amazing partners were included in the following categories:


Advocating for Women at Work: Fairygodboss

Professional Development and Education: Lean In, Glassbreakers, Take the Lead Women

Women in Leadership: Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund (honorable mention)

Thought Leadership and Media: Women@Forbes

Supporting Entrepreneurs: Circular Board


Yes, we’re honored by this inclusion on Ellevate’s prestigious list of awesome companies. But, honestly—as arrogant as it may sound—we aren’t all that surprised.


Why? Well, we’re so overwhelmingly proud of what we’ve managed to create here at Pink Petro. From our inspiring members to our incredible partners, we know we’re making great strides in closing the gender gap in the energy industry—we can quite literally feel it. And, we have all of you to thank for that progress.


We’re so looking forward to continuing to disrupt in 2017. We know there are plenty more big things to come—and, to us, that’s the most exciting part.
