Philanthropists and foundations have committed over $20 billion for climate change advocacy over the next two years. Some of this will fund work that is adverse to the energy industry. But much can be complementary. As the industry navigates the energy transition, new and collaborative pathways for engagement are emerging. Our expert panel will share insights on what we should expect from climate advocacy at a local, national, and global level, and how the industry can constructively engage. What do activist climate philanthropists and investors really want? How can the gap close between energy executives, climate donors, and investors? How can stakeholders move beyond demonization to align on an orderly energy transition?
Continue the conversation on the interplay between climate advocates and the industry, directly with the panelists from the preceding session on this topic.
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?
