On June 15, 2016, I am honored and excited to be a motivational speaker for the 9th Annual Energetic Women Conference. The event, held at the Hyatt Regency in Houston, Texas, attracts over 400 men and women in the energy field.
Run by the Midwest ENERGY Association, the groups overall goal is to increase the pool of promotable women in energy operations and engineering.
The conference was started nine years ago to help address a gender gap in the energy industry. It has grown from 50 people to over 400 delegates and provides professional development and networking opportunities.
A women- based leadership conference helps make gender inequality visible to everyone. We cannot empower younger women in any industry unless we educate everyone to embrace it.
Women in leadership positions have unique qualities that need to be nourished and accepted, a conference like this helps people do that.
The other motivational speakers are Kirsty Spraggon from the Houston Space Center talking about Aww-dacity and Juliet Funt talking about reclaiming WhiteSpace.
Some of the compelling break out sessions include navigating change, difficult discussions and myths of leadership.
I will present the opening keynote speech, Follow Me I'm Right Behind You to inspire women in leadership roles to thrive in change, be resilient, encourage levity and influence others.
