Today I'm at the Wall Street Journal's Women in the Workplace forum to discuss the 2018 results of the latest survey. (Spoiler alert: it's not good.) Our friend Sheryl Sandberg says it's time for companies to Lean In.
I couldn't agree more. But there is good news for energy.
The industry is shifting and collaboration is the name of the game. A few weeks ago ExxonMobil, Chevron and Oxy joined the OGCI, a big win for our climate. Equinor, BP, Shell and Total joined forces to create human rights supplier assessments. And despite the rapid speed of innovation pressuring the industry, CEOs now see technological disruption as more of an opportunity, says Regina Mayor with KPMG's CEO Outlook. (It's about time, huh?) .
So a shift is happening. Tech has created a business, geo-political, and social tsunami. I think this is good for us and I hope the workforce will shift too.
We're more than doing our part. This month we honored 38 difference makers at our 2nd GRIT Awards and released the results of the Energy Diversity & Inclusion Index assessing inclusion and belonging with our partners, GapingVoid. We welcomed two new members Anadarko and Wood Mackenzie and we are keeping the profile high, socializing the much needed inclusion to drive the energy transition.
