AAPG will sponsor this year’s Women’s Global Leadership Conference in Energy and Technology (WGLC) – a decision that came easily for all of us to make.

The fourth annual WGLC will take place Nov. 13-14 in Houston.

The conference, which will feature high-ranking female executives and world leaders, provides an international forum for senior management to discuss issues surrounding leadership in the energy industry.

Past speakers have addressed issues confronting leadership at today’s energy and technology organizations, such as effecting cultural change, cultivating leadership, environmental stewardship, geopolitical dynamics and the roles of energy and technology in economic development.

The conference has been successful from the start and attracted 900 participants last November for a full day of keynote speakers, breakout sessions and networking opportunities devoted to energy and technology. More than 15 AAPG members attended.

For AAPG, the WGLC offers an opportunity to build networks with professionals in energy and technology who might be interested in the benefits of AAPG membership. More importantly, it offers an opportunity for AAPG and its members to learn more about the realities of attracting and retaining women in the petroleum industry from people outside the upstream geology and geophysics disciplines with which AAPG is already familiar.

Hosts are energy publications Petroleum Economist, Hydrocarbon Processing and World Oil.
