The Community Council, a Corporate Member Benefit

Blog Post created by katie.mehnert Champion on Jun 22, 2017

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.
