GW is the perfect forum to network with fascinating leaders, exchange valuable ideas, personal experience and career development for women in the sector. Personally, since I joined in 2013, I have gained a lot from inspirational presentations, from leading female’s executives, candid discussion on balancing home/work-life, managing professional development matters, as well as imbibing valuable advice on how to develop my leadership skill; The club is the “Mother forum “ for women in the petroleum & energy sector.

I enthusiastically attended the Global Women Petroleum & Energy Club Luncheon in Cape Town in 2016 and got enthralled by the goodness and will to share and help each other. The guest speaker, Mary M’Mukindia, gave an extremely moving and inspiring speech that touched the hearts of every one of us in the room, whether senior executives or youngsters eager to climb the ladder in this industry. I am convinced this type of event is essential to build the necessary network for women progression in Oil&Gas.
