Energy Workforce CEO Leslie Beyer received the “Vicki Hollub Leadership in Industry Award” from the Federation of Houston Professional Women. She also served as keynote speaker for the Federation’s 2022 Executive Conference where she discussed equity in energy and how energy service and technology companies actively engage in that arena.
The Federation of Houston Professional Women 2022 Executive Conference agenda centered on “Innovation, Environment and Energy” and featured leaders from across the energy industry including Vicki Hollub, OXY, and Energy Workforce Board Member, Laura Schilling, TechnipFMC.
Within the context of global demand for energy rising, Beyer’s message on equity in energy centered around three concepts: security, sustainability and equity.
On the energy security aspect, she discussed how U.S. domestic energy production provides affordable, accessible and reliable energy to our nation and to populations around the world. In doing so, the U.S. can provide oil and gas resources from cleaner and safer sources. Finally, as the energy technology and services sector reinvents itself for a low-carbon future, it is imperative that inclusion and diversity be a pillar of good governance and business practices.
After her keynote, Beyer joined Hollub and Nikki Martin, EnerGeo Alliance, for a fireside chat moderated by Nelia Mazula, Siemens, where they shared takeaways from the event and ideas presented, including how low-cost energy and innovation is necessary to achieve equitable access to energy.
Energy Workforce thanks the Federation of Houston Professional Women for the opportunity to collaborate and share how the energy services sector is leading on equity in energy.
