The oil & gas industry needs diverse workers to continue to innovate in a sector filled with transformation, but studies indicate that women make up only 15% of the workforce.

Reconnect now in-person with dynamic women oil & gas leaders to accelerate organizational change and personal growth. Attendees will participate in knowledge sharing and collaboration while building relationships and enhancing professional networks. The program format includes keynote addresses, panel sessions and plenty of networking opportunities. Register now for this unique opportunity to collaborate with the top women in oil and gas.
