    Accelerating Progress: Diversity, equity & inclusion in executive leadership

    Panel Diversity & Inclusion/Future of Workforce

    Last year, women made up 22% of the workforce in the US oil and gas industry, and nearly half of them worked in office and administrative support roles. While the number of corporate diversity & inclusion policies has increased 50% in the last five years, women and people of color report that they are repeatedly overlooked. A conversation with three leaders will ask: How diverse and inclusive is executive leadership in the energy industry? Are diverse teams better equipped to manage the challenges facing the industry, including the energy transition? Why? What actions would do most to advance diversity & inclusion in executive leadership?
