Leadership Conference for Women in Oil & Gas

Leadership Conference for Women in Oil & Gas

July 13-14, 2021 | Online :: Central Time

“The EUCI Leadership Conference for Women in Oil & Gas was one of the most worthwhile, stimulating and efficient conferences I have been to.” Sr. Reservoir Engineer, Tellurian

“Thoroughly enjoyed the conference. It was truly empowering, and the speakers were inspiring.” Lead Analyst, Energy Transfer Partners

“Extremely professional and inspiring conference! Outstanding panelists and keynote speakers!” Project Manager Environmental Scientist, GHD Services Inc.

During the pandemic, oil & gas industry leaders have stepped up to inspire and unify. As we begin to navigate the industry post-pandemic, women leaders must work together so hard-won progress is not lost. Women account for less than a quarter (22%) of employees in the oil and gas industry, according to a World Petroleum Council Report. There are increasing numbers of women leaders, but we are still a long way from parity.

Reconnect now with dynamic women leaders in oil & gas as they share their strategies and experiences on how to ensure organizational change and personal growth even during trying times. Attendees will participate in knowledge sharing and collaboration while building relationships and enhancing your professional network. 

The goal of this event is to help professionals advance their careers in a traditionally male industry by providing insight into key oil and gas trends and skills for personal and professional development.  The program format includes keynote addresses, panel sessions, interactive group discussions and a plentitude of networking opportunities. 

Attendees will leave this event with practical strategies, insights, and guidance on career growth

9:15 – 10:00 a.m. :: Oil & Gas Industry Post-pandemic: Leading Through Challenging Times

Over the last year, the oil and gas industry has been on the forefront of difficult times. As leaders in the industry, we were challenged beyond our experience to lead through a significant supply surge with remarkable demand decrease at the same time. And while many of us have been through several downturns, this one was unique and required our industry to unite, react and show our resilience. This presentation will explore the challenges that faced one independent oil and gas company and how they were able to overcome with tremendous resilience.

Beth McDonald, P.E., SVP Strategic Planning, Field Development and Marketing, Pioneer Natural Resources

10:00 – 10:45 a.m. :: Breaking Barriers: Gender Style Effects

Many women are experiencing subtle forms of inequity in the workplace:  unconscious bias, less access to challenging assignments, and new opportunities. Women are still fighting the stereotype that increasing the number of females in an organization will result in additional emotional and mental labor. During this session, we will discuss actual gender style effects and how women can address subtle gender inequality.

Ami Arief, PE, SVP Tellurian Production

Kristen Ray, VP, Technology, BHP

Sarah Sandberg, Sr. Director of Investor Relations & Corporate Development, DCP Midstream

10:45 – 12:00 p.m. :: Best Practices for Emerging Leaders

Taking on a leadership role requires a different skill set than those of our original roles. As a new or potential leader, developing new strengths can take time. This session will provide emerging leaders with advice and strategies to facilitate smooth transitions into leadership roles. The presentation will cover:

  • Leading through times of organizational change
  • Managing former colleagues
  • Motivating and inspiring your team
  • Navigating internal politics
  • Staying relatable to your team while still maintaining effective boundaries
