WHAT IS THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY COUNCIL?

 

Corporate, academic and industry group members of Pink Petro are allowed to provide delegates to serve on the Global Community CouncilThe council is a cross-industry community to connect industry to resources and best practices.  The role of the council is to provide a neutral platform for dialogue and actions to address gender equality and building inclusive culture in the full value chain.  

 

WHAT MAKES THIS COUNCIL DIFFERENT?

 

The council's work is progressive movement for change.

 

The value chain in energy is diverse, vast, and highly fragmented.  Companies and industry recognize we need to build a more robust inclusive value chain to compete and meet the growing social needs of communities we serve.  We believe our progress will be accelerated by working together.  This global council connects companies, regardless of size, within industry, and to external initiatives.  The council evaluates and steers relevant programming and policies for the Pink Petro community at large and is also looking to help advance the industry as a place women and minorities want to work.  Pink Petro also creates key external partnerships with organizations, individual ambassadors, and initiatives that align with the charter of the GCC.   Some examples include learning and partnerships with Josh Levs, UN Advocate of Gender Equality and Modern Dads, LeanIn.org and the Women in the Workplace study, and The World Economic Forum Call to Action on Gender Equality in Energy.   

 

WHO AT MY COMPANY OR ORGANIZATION SHOULD SERVE?

 

Pink Petro believes we need to create the change we want to see.   Our council is inclusive of gender, generations, ethnicities and cultures, and levels/experience, so we encourage you to think about who can represent your company given these characteristics.  Men are absolutely welcome.  Your delegate must serve a minimum of a calendar year and can serve a maximum of two years. 

 

HOW OFTEN DOES THE COUNCIL MEET?

 

The council meets virtually quarterly with one meeting in person in Houston the first week of December.  We use technology to enable all meetings.  We also have a private app to keep conversations and knowledge sharing ongoing for those who want to connect that way.

 

The Community Council was formed out of a desire for industry to accelerate the pace of change in driving inclusion and an end to the gender gap.

  • Uninstall and install the app.

Your Activity page may look intimidating: when you're at the top level, you can see all the activity generated in your community. But as you start working in Pink Petro, you'll start personalizing your stream. As you begin following people, places, and content, clicking a stream shows you only activity from the sources you follow. For example, you can see activity for groups you belong to as well as colleagues at your same level in the Connections stream. At any time, you can click the Filter menu to catch up with status updates only. That's a great way to see what other people in the community are excited about. Another way is to check out Trending Content and Trending People widgets in the right pane.

 

After you've been using Pink Petro for a while, Recommended For You can show you activity you might have missed based on its popularity and relevance to you and your interests. You can help the Recommender learn about what you want to see. Not interested? Click the x next to an item to banish it.

 

Quick Tip #19: Linking

Posted by robin.dupre Champion May 14, 2015

Linking is one of the key elements that makes websites valuable. You can include links in anything you post in Pink Petro by highlighting the text you want to convert to a link and clicking on the link button in the editor to activate the Link Picker. The Link Picker gives you the power to link to any web address (URL), search for something in Pink Petro to link to on the All Content tab, or you can choose from your recent browsing history on the Browse History tab.

 

You can also link to documents using @mentioning. Just type an @ followed by some text to start searching for a document. For example, type @Weekly to bring up a picklist of documents with Weekly in the title.

 

Ask your questions in Pink Petro rather than through email. Not only will you be helping everyone by establishing the answer in a way that other people can use it, you'll be helping the person with the answer by limiting the number of times they answer it.

 

Plus, you'll receive a more thorough answer by engaging the community rather than a few select individuals.

When you mark a discussion as a question you're giving people even more incentive to answer. Once they do you can mark their answers as correct or helpful -- you'll give their reputation a boost.

You have lots of options for Pink Petro to notify you about changes and updates to content you care about. Changes to content you create and participated in are always followed in Inbox. You can also click "Follow" to bring updates about documents, discussions, and Place activity into an Activity stream. Following any item in Inbox pulls activity into your read-tracked Inbox stream, and you'll be alerted about it as soon as you log in. (Be sparing about what you follow there: you don't want important items to be buried in a sea of updates you don't care about.)

 

To begin following activity, navigate to the area you care about — a place or document or blog or person, for example — and click "Follow" under Actions. Then select one or more streams to follow it in. The button changes to say "Following." Click it again to stop following.

Whether you get notified by email about stuff you follow is up to you--just click Preferences under your name to decide whether to get email about everything you follow, just Inbox items, or some other selection of items. To enable email notifications on any stream, edit the stream and turn Email Updates on at the top of the page.

 

Looking for someone? There are many ways to find them:

  • Try a search: You can enter someone's name right in the search box in the user bar. You can also search for an expertise and Pink Petro will find any colleagues matching that skill.
  • Don't worry if you don't find any results matching a person. All content in Pink Petro is written by people so sometimes the best way to find someone is to find something they wrote and link up with them that way.
  • Try browsing

Try filtering by tags. Tags unify content and people. Often, you might want to find someone based on a keyword. The tags interface is a great way to jump in and find people.

 

Quick Tip #4: Tag It

Posted by robin.dupre Champion May 14, 2015

Tags are essentially keywords. When you're about to post an item, like a blog post, document, or discussion, select or type in the keywords that come to mind in the Tags field. This will increase the search relevance of the item and help others find it in the future.

 

On many pages in the system you'll find a Tag Cloud that shows the most commonly used tags in that part of the community. You can click on any of the tags to find items that have been tagged with that word. You can even select multiple tags to narrow your search to items that have more than one tag applied.

 

You can set your time zone, discussion thread, and email notification preferences all in one handy location.

Have you ever forgotten the location of a file, but remembered who worked on it? With Pink Petro you can easily get to all of the content that someone has worked on. Just navigate to their profile and go to their Content tab. Inside that tab you can filter by tag or by the type of content, such as document, discussion, or blog post.

 

Inbox is the place to look for activity that directly concerns you--notifications, mentions, direct messages, plus any activity on content you participated in. When there's a new reply to a discussion you participated in, you get a read alert here: when content you wrote gets a revision or a comment, you get a read alert for that too. The same thing happens when you get a mention, message, or system notification. You can choose to use alerts and read-tracking alone to keep up with your Inbox stream, or you can set your email notifications (under "[your name] > "Preferences") to send an email notification each time you get Inbox activity.

 

If you want activity you're not directly involved in to be tracked in your Inbox, just navigate to any item and click "Follow," selecting Inbox as the stream. You'll get alerted whenever there are changes or comments. If you decide to stop following it, just click "Stop following in Inbox" from the Inbox preview pane, or go to the item, click "Following," and uncheck Inbox. You won't be alerted about that item again.
