HERWorld17: Big News and Opportunities for Women in Energy

Blog Post created by katie.mehnert Champion on Mar 13, 2017

Last week was...as my daughter likes to say it, "epic".  


Thousands of you participated in your locations and connected with us at the main stage in Houston.  We made a few exciting announcements I want to share with you.


Pink Petro launches careers site for women in energy


 The gender gap in the energy industry is atrocious, and we want to do something about that.  In 2015, Pink Petro launched an online private social community to bring together women in energy. What did we learn? We now know that the entire energy sector is plagued with a diversity talent crisis.  We also know that energy is an often misunderstood line of work, yet it brings such amazing economic and development opportunities to the workforce and supply chain.  Experience Energy is a talent platform to bring candidates and companies (of all sizes and needs) together to get at the gender diversity gap.  Come Experience Energy today.


Pink Petro launches bigger offering with Pink Petro TV


Together with Linda Lorelle, of Lorelle Media, Pink Petro will co-produce Pink Petro TV.  This innovative and informative online channel will feature the voices and faces of energy.  We'll cover the business, technology, workforce and supply chain.  We'll talk tech, dispel the myths, and show the human side of energy that most don't get to see.  We'll step into some of the world's largest companies and classrooms and learn more energy and how it fuels our economy and daily lives.


Linda Lorelle is a two-time Emmy award winning journalist having anchored NBC KPRC news for nearly 17 years. To learn more about Pink Petro TV or to sponsor, connect with us today.

International Women’s Day 2017 marks the official launch of the collaboration between Pink Petro and Take The Lead Women, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to preparing, developing, inspiring and propelling women to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025.  Gloria Feldt brings a rare combination of frontline leadership with experience of 20 years in the West Texas oil patch.
