Pink Petro TV Wrap: Lean In, All In, Join In

Blog Post created by katie.mehnert Champion on May 15, 2017

Last week's Pink Petro TV broadcast was the first of many.  We started on Thursday evening at Shell to share leadership messages across industry.  A few hundred gathered to connect on the common theme -- that it is time we lean in, all in and join in together as an industry and community to drive change forward and build inclusion in our workforces.


President of the women's network, Tricia Moss and her team approached Pink Petro several weeks back with the vision to create a cross-industry engagement.  And we did!  Executives, professionals, students and community leaders from Shell, Chevron, ExxonMobil, BP, Phillips66, INTECSEA Worley Parsons, GE Oil and Gas, Emerson Automation, Weatherford, Halliburton, Forum Technologies, Marathon Oil, Southwestern Energy and several other companies came together to talk about the workforce of the future.  


Andy Brown, RDS executive committee member and Director of Shell's Upstream delivered a strong message for the need to continue on the journey but that we need to step up and do more.





Together, industry needs to combat two fronts: the gender gap and the reputation gap.  The oil and gas community ranks last in a recent S&P Global report which looks at gender diversity on boards.
