The Pink Petro HERWorld Energy Forum on 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.
The two organizations will kickstart the partnership at the third annual #HERWorld17 on March 8 at Rice University, where Gloria Feldt, co-founder and president of Take The Lead, serves as moderator for the panel, “Leaning Into Skill Building for The Market Return.” She brings a rare combination of frontline leadership with experience of 20 years in the West Texas oil patch. People magazine called her "The Voice of Experience." Vanity Fair named Feldt one of America's "Top 200 Women Legends, Leaders, and Trailblazers." And in naming her to its "Texas 20," Texas Monthly Magazine described her as "part den mother, part businesswoman, part Mae West."
Feldt will lead the HERWorld17 panel of experts from Rice University, Marathon Oil, and KPMG, in a discussion about preparing for an uncertain workplace of the future; skills or expertise needed to acquire now to succeed tomorrow; and navigating the next decade in the global workforce.
Author of the best-selling, No Excuses: Nine Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power , Feldt uses her experience as a leader, CEO and women's advocate in the creation and development of the 9 Leadership Power Tools [https://www.taketheleadwomen.com/curriculum/] . These tools crack the code by changing women’s relationship with power and intentionality and providing immediately actionable tools along with individual Strategic Leadership Action Plans that help women advance in their careers while accelerating their value to their companies.
Beginning April 23, Pink Petro and Take The Lead will partner with a nine-week, online, interactive course, “9 Leadership Power Tools To Accelerate Your Career” exclusively for Pink Petro members. Thousands of women in multiple disciplines and business sectors have benefited from this course, in-person and online. “Life changing,” many participants call it.
“With what I have learned in this course I will be able to push that tipping point in the right direction and get the promotion I have been working towards. It also reaffirmed things I am doing well but provided additional insight as to why these habits are working well for me,” commented Michelle Collura, a former course participant.
“The course provided me with a kick start about making my career goals a priority in order to keep balance, positivity and forward movement into a career path that will sustain happiness for me and my family,” said Rachael Scheffler, who participated in an online course. “We will have this resource to use as we move through various stages of our careers.”
"I'm so excited to be working together with Take The Lead. It's the best time for the two communities to come together to help women achieve parity" said Katie Mehnert, CEO and Founder of Pink Petro.
