    For International Women’s Day 2021, I am participating in the ‘Untapped Reserves’ survey, as part of the World Petroleum Council & BCG’s partnership to drive gender diversity in oil & gas – and I encourage you to participate too!

    Click here for the ‘global online survey’. I encourage both men & women in the sector to make their voice heard, and #choosetochallenge the status quo, where only 22% of employees in the sector are women.

    Women continue to be under-represented in the oil and gas workforce at all career stages., the first-ever dedicated study on gender balance in the oil and gas industry, reported in 2017 that overall gender diversity in oil and gas sits at 22%1.  Additionally, 35% less women make it to boards in oil and gas1 compared to similar industries.

    Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) are core values for the industry, and on International Women’s Day this year, we encourage everyone to #choosetochallenge the industry and themselves, by participating in the 2021 ‘Untapped Reserves 2.0’ survey on Driving Gender Balance in Oil and Gas.  Companies can do so by providing D&I related organisational statistics which will form a company benchmark and allow them to track their progress against their peers on gender issues.

    The data collected through these surveys will be critical to drawing out true-to-reality insights on ongoing challenges and proposing a path to achieving gender balance in oil and gas industry. This is your chance to share your views on what is working, and where more work is needed.
